NYC Wrongful DeathThe grief that comes with losing a loved one is just the first of many burdens a family has to endure after a sudden death. Families of wrongful death victims often have to deal with mounting medical bills, funeral and burial expenses and the loss of wages the victim would have earned. These heavy financial burdens coupled with the growing sense of pain, loss and suffering can prove challenging to deal with. This is why you need an experienced wrongful death lawyer on your side. Contact Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP at (212) 986-7353 to discuss your situation further.

One way to relieve some of these burdens is to seek out financial compensation from the party responsible for the wrongful death. Wrongful death lawsuits can help a family recover the expenses associated with the death, including compensation for:

Loss of salary  ~  Companionship  ~  Benefits  ~  Medical bills  ~  Pain and suffering  ~  Funeral expenses

Not all families grieving over the sudden loss of a loved one are eligible for support through civil litigation. A wrongful death is one that is caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another. Wrongful death claims in New York are often caused by car accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, medical negligence, dog bites, construction accidents and defective products.

In order to receive compensation after one of these types of accidents, the family will have to prove the at-fault party negligence directly led to your loved one’s death. Grieving families shouldn’t have to worry about gathering evidence and building a case. An experienced New York wrongful death attorney can help families better understand their legal rights and options.
