New York Wrongful Death Attorneys

Compassionate Support and Knowledgeable Guidance During this Difficult Time

There is nothing more shocking and emotionally devastating than to suddenly lose a loved one. The unexpected death of a parent, spouse, or child can leave a family in turmoil, and the loss of support and companionship that the loved one provided can have ramifications that last a lifetime.

If a person dies due to the negligence or misconduct of an individual, business, or facility, then it is considered a wrongful death, and our legal system allows those left behind to seek compensation for the resultant loss of guidance, support, and companionship. This compensation would be in addition to the compensation for the deceased’s pain and suffering prior to death.

Wrongful death can arise out of a broad range of causes including:
