What Is Wrongful Death in New York?
Generally speaking, New York law defines “wrongful death” as a death caused by the willful or negligent act of another. After a wrongful death, the deceased person’s representative, typically a spouse or family member, may sue to recover damages from whomever is responsible for the victim’s death. Under New York law, the wrongful death claim typically has to be filed within two years of the victim’s death.
The purpose of a wrongful death claim is to compensate the victim’s family for the loss they have suffered as a result of their loved one’s untimely death in a preventable accident. Whether your loved one died in a car accident, truck crash, a firearms or hunting accident, or as a result of medical malpractice, the Syracuse wrongful death lawyers at Scott C. Gottlieb, LLP, are ready to commit their knowledge and considerable experience to help you and your family move forward after a devastating loss.
