We will help you and your immediate family members receive financial compensation from the parties responsible for the death of your loved one.
What Is Wrongful Death?
Wrongful death is legally defined as a situation where negligence leads to the death of another person. Wrongful death may occur for a variety of reasons, including medical malpractice, accidents at the workplace, car accidents, slips and falls, trips and falls, or other serious accidents.
Although it is difficult for family members to think in terms of filing a lawsuit after the tragic loss of a loved one, a wrongful death claim can offer some sense of justice and help cover costs, such as funeral expenses, loss of wages and other forms of compensation.
New York Wrongful Death Laws Have Filing Deadlines
If you believe your loved one may have been the victim of a wrongful death, it is natural to grieve. You need time to console your loved ones, arrange for the funeral services and emotionally come to terms with the tragic situation.
However, as hard as it may be, you need to also be aware that New York’s wrongful death statutes have deadlines. If you do not file your wrongful death claim before that deadline, you may be barred from filing a claim and seeking the justice that you and your family deserve.
When you hire one of our compassionate Staten Island wrongful death attorneys, we will take care of the legal matters and ensure that you do not miss any deadlines so you can focus on dealing with the loss of your loved one.
