Wrongful Death

When one person injures another person or damages his or her property due to negligence, the injured party can sue the negligent party for his or her damages in a personal injury lawsuit. However, when negligence causes a person’s death, the deceased’s family will need to file a wrongful death claim to secure compensation.

Every state has unique laws concerning wrongful death claims, and our attorneys want New York residents to know what to expect from the wrongful death claims process.

Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in New York

A wrongful death claim operates very similarly to a personal injury claim, with the major difference that the victim in the case cannot represent his or her own interests. A surviving loved one will need to file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the decedent. Like most other states, New York places a two-year statute of limitations on wrongful death claims, beginning on the date of the death in question.
