Helping Families Navigate Wrongful Death Claims

Losing a loved one or family member in a tragic incident or accident can be devastating, particularly if he or she was an innocent victim of someone else's negligence or careless acts. However, while this may be one of the most grief-stricken moments of your life, it is important to know that you have legal options. For instance, you may be able to hold the negligent parties accountable for their actions by filing a wrongful death claim.

While experiencing the death of a loved one is never easy, we at Keith D. Silverstein & Associates, P.C., want you to know that our attorneys are here to help explain your legal options and guide you through this difficult time with caring, compassionate and personalized legal guidance. Let us help you seek justice for your loved one's death.

What Is A Wrongful Death Claim?

Essentially, a wrongful death claim can arise following nearly any type of fatal injury in which someone's negligence resulted in the death of a family member, including your spouse, parent or child. While these claims can involve nearly any type of personal injury accident, they are often associated with serious car accidents, defectively designed products and dangerous drugs, just to list a few.

Under New York law, you may be able to seek several forms of damages in a wrongful death suit, including:

  • Loss of future earnings or income
  • Medical expenses associated with your loved one's injury
  • Funeral expenses
  • Damages for loss of companionship and support
  • Pain and suffering

While it is certainly true that no amount of compensation can ever replace a loved one, ensuring that the parties that caused his or her death are held accountable may provide you with some comfort and closure.
