New York Wrongful Death Law
One of the most important elements of New York wrongful death law for surviving spouses is recovery of the loss of future earnings. This allows a surviving spouse to recover compensation for earnings that the lost spouse could have been expected to earn.
Spouses can also recover damages from loss of household services. For instance, consider an example where the deceased spouse used to pick up the kids after school every day because the other spouse was working. After the wrongful death, the surviving spouse is left with the burden of changing jobs, missing hours or hiring help. This is but one of many services that, when lost, can lead to significant financial hardship.
There is also the potential for compensation for emotional pain and suffering and other elements that are not as easy to value, but important nonetheless. Our attorneys have significant experience handling wrongful death claims for people who have lost loved ones in fatal accidents. We are dedicated to helping you obtain the compensation you need and deserve in this difficult time.
