Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

Personal Injury

It is never easy to lose a loved one. However, coping with an unexpected death is even more painful when it was caused by the negligent actions of another. Feelings of confusion and frustration are common, and you most likely have many unanswered questions.

While no amount of money can truly compensate you for your loss, a settlement in a wrongful death case can help keep you and your family financially afloat during this difficult time.

In New York, a wrongful death lawsuit may be filed by the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate. In most cases, this consists of immediate family members such as a surviving spouse or children. However, in certain situations the parents of the deceased may be entitled to file a claim as well.
