Manhattan Wrongful Death Lawyer
Helping Families in Manhattan through Difficult Times
When a person is killed as a result of another person’s negligent or reckless actions, it can be incredibly difficult for surviving family members to cope. Although no amount of money can replace a lost loved one, New York law does provide some relief to the deceased’s surviving family members.
If you have lost someone in a wrongful death accident, an experienced lawyer can help you recover financial compensation for both your economic and non-economic losses.
Wrongful death accidents can result from a wide range of personal injury accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Trucking accidents
- Subway accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Dog bites
- Slip and fall
- Catastrophic injury
- Medical malpractice
- Lead poisoning
- Construction accidents
How to Prove Negligence in a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
In order to successfully file and win a wrongful death lawsuit, you must prove that the victim was killed as a result of another person’s negligence or recklessness. Once you have won your case, you are entitled to both economic damages and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are awarded to cover the cost of any medical treatment that was needed either after the accident or before death, lost future income, lost benefits, estate planning expenses, administrative expenses, funeral expenses, and attorney fees.
