Wrongful Death Claims In New York

New York law recognizes that when a family experiences an unexpected death, they are faced a number of different financial and emotional hardships—both immediately and in the long-term. Because of this, plaintiffs in wrongful death claims are eligible to receive a number of different damages.

Damages in a New York wrongful death claim can include:

  • Medical costs incurred before the deceased passed away
  • Conscious pain and suffering the deceased experienced before passing away
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Lost inheritances
  • Lost support, services, nurturing, care, and guidance
  • Funeral expenses

Interest on these damages can also be awarded to the plaintiffs in these cases. While not every form of damage applies to every suit, the plaintiffs' right to all of them must be clearly and compellingly put forth before the court. Our firm is ready to prepare that argument on your family's behalf and ensure that, in the wake of your tragedy, the responsible party's role in the loss of your loved one is vividly illustrated.
