Long Island Wrongful Death Lawyer
Seeking Justice After Losing a Loved One
The loss of a loved one in an accident is extremely traumatic, and can leave a family both emotionally shocked and grief stricken. Many times the family may not know exactly what caused the accident or whether or not another party was responsible for the incident. A personal injury attorney will ensure that an independent, comprehensive investigation is conducted, and help you pursue wrongful death benefits if someone else's negligence contributed to the death of your loved one.

What is a Wrongful Death Suit?
A wrongful death claim typically involves the filing of a lawsuit in civil court to recover monetary damages for a death caused by another party's negligence.
The types of compensation awarded in these cases can include:
- Hospital and medical expenses prior to death
- Any pain or suffering experienced by the deceased prior to his or her death
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of support
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of care provided to dependents
- The value of household services provided by the deceased
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Suit?
A personal representative of the deceased is legally able to file a wrongful death suit. Unlike many other states, family members who typically are able to file a wrongful death case must also be appointed a personal representative in the state of New York in order to have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
The claim must be filed within two years of the date of death before the statute of limitations runs out.
