Any violent or accidental death is tragic. However, only in certain circumstances does New York law entitle survivors to wrongful death benefits from the parties responsible. If a member of your family has died as a result of the negligence of another, no settlement or verdict will replace the void in your life and you may choose not to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit. However, you should carefully consider all aspects of the situation.

Wrongful Death Lawsuits Prevent Future Tragedies

A successful claim for economic compensation for your loss of emotional and financial support will provide funds that you need to rebuild your life. Furthermore, when a jury awards a verdict in a wrongful death case it makes a strong statement to those responsible, providing an incentive that may prevent future, similar acts of negligence.
