About Wrongful Death Lawsuits
In the state of New York, wrongful death lawsuits can only be filed by immediate family members. This may include a spouse, children, or parents or guardians. In some instances, it can include personal representatives such as siblings, cousins or extended family members who have been appointed by the court to represent immediate family.
When the deceased is not survived by a spouse or children, a sibling can sometimes file a lawsuit on behalf of the deceased's estate. Our experienced legal staff can help you determine if you are eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit during your consultation.
Surviving family members who file a wrongful death lawsuit may seek compensation for damages such as:
- End of life medical expenses
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Projected future income
- Projected future contributions, including insurance, tuition, and mortgage
- Loss of consortium
- Emotional suffering
