What costs can be covered in a wrongful death claim?
In a typical
personal injury suit, medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses related to the treatment
and debilitating nature of the injury can be recognized for compensation.
In wrongful death suit, different costs and burdens are considered and
awarded relief can greatly minimize added strains for the loved ones filing suit.
Costs that can be covered in a wrongful death claim include:
- Medical care expenses that occurred before the passing of the deceased
- Any conscious pain and suffering the deceased experienced before passing
- Any wages and benefits the deceased provided family that are now lost
- The value of any support and service the deceased had provided family
- Any inheritance lost by the children of the deceased
- Any parental care and guidance now lost to children of the deceased
- Any funeral and burial expenses
No amount of compensation can replace the loss of life after a tragic accident,
but for families to face additional hardships after the passing of a loved
one is unacceptable. Our compassionate and aggressive team of Long Island
wrongful death lawyers is ready to hear your story and start taking steps

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in New York?
Losing someone you love due to the negligence of another person is an unimaginable
tragedy. If it happens to you, you may experience serious personal trauma
and loss, regardless of whether your lost loved one is a blood relative.
However, your relationship to the deceased could directly affect your
ability to take legal action on their behalf, especially if you wish to
file a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible party.
In the state of New York, a wrongful death claim must be brought by the
official representative of the deceased person’s estate. Other states allow other family members and non-executors of the deceased
person’s estate to bring wrongful death lawsuits, but New York courts
do not permit anyone but the established estate representative. However,
even if you are not the personal representative of your loved one’s
estate, the damages you have suffered as a result of their death can still
be included in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the correct party.
