We Can Help Your Family After A Wrongful Death
It is hard enough to lose a family member unexpectedly. Realizing that someone else’s negligence caused a fatal accident can bring extra layers of pain. Furthermore, when someone has died in a fatal accident and that person was a breadwinner or vital contributor to family life, the losses will be more than emotional. You should be compensated for practical and financial losses when there is a legal path to recovery of monetary damages.
Greenberg Law P.C. is a family-run firm, and we are sensitive to losses that affect entire families. As career trial lawyers practicing personal injury law, we understand the difficulties a family can encounter after a serious accident suddenly disrupts their way of life.
We are also naturally sensitive to a family’s need to grieve after the sudden loss of a loved one. We can get an investigation started without disrupting your funeral or family gatherings to memorialize your loved one.
Pursuing Compensation After A Loved One’s Accidental Death
According to state law in New York, a “wrongful death” is a fatality caused by “a wrongful act, neglect or default” by someone else. A wrongful death claim can help a family recover compensation for losses including the following:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical expenses after the deceased person’s final injury or illness
- Financial contributions that the person would have made to the family
- The value of practical services, such as child care, parental nurturing and home maintenance, that the deceased person would have contributed to the family
In New York, a wrongful death claim may be filed by the personal representative of the estate on behalf of a surviving spouse, children or the deceased’s parents if the person was unmarried and had no children or grandchildren.
