How Do Wrongful Deaths Occur?

In New York, wrongful death claims arises when a person is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another party. Those who were dependents or beneficiaries of the decedent, such as husbands, wives, children and others may be entitled to monetary damages.

Wrongful death claims can arise out of:

  • Car, truck, and taxi accidents
  • Pedestrian collisions
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Any other type of accident or incident that causes death

Compensation for Wrongful Death

Claims for wrongful death in New York are unique.

Factors that the New York courts recognize when evaluating a wrongful death claim may include:

  • The amount of money earned by the deceased
  • Loss of companionship
  • The savings of the deceased
  • The degree to which survivors were financially dependent on the deceased
  • Expenses incurred by survivors for medical and funeral costs

While no amount of financial payment can ever compensate for the loss of a loved one, being financially secure in your future and the comfort of responsible parties being brought to justice can provide a sense of closure and security to survivors.
