New York Wrongful Death Lawyers
If your loved one has recently suffered an untimely death due to the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of an individual or entity, your family may be entitled to monetary compensation through a civil action. Depending on the facts and details of the case, your local district attorney may also choose to pursue criminal charges. Some of the more common wrongful death cases include the following:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Construction accidents
- Crane accidents
- Exposure to hazardous or toxic conditions
Our lawyers will work diligently to help ensure that all beneficiaries receive rightful compensation on behalf of their deceased family member. Survivors and beneficiaries that may recover compensations may include a widow, widower, children, parents, and other heirs. The monetary award can help to cover everything from funeral and medical expenses to lost wages and expected inheritance funds. In some cases, it may also cover pain and suffering resulting from the death.
Do You Have a Case?
When it comes to civil cases, the burden of proof is usually less than in criminal cases. However, we still must be able to prove that your case is legitimate. We will first make an analysis to ensure that there is liability. In other words, is there an individual or entity that should be held responsible? Is it clear that the potential defendant’s actions caused the injuries? Not only do we help prove liability, but we will also work on your behalf to gather evidence. Analyzing the evidence will allow us to further determine the legitimacy of your case.
