When Wrongful Death Claims Arise
Wrongful death claims typically arise when someone is killed as a result of another person’s negligence. In some instances, these deaths occur in motor vehicle accidents or from on-the-job injuries. Medical malpractice could also be to blame for a wrongful death.
Our experienced team of Brooklyn wrongful death lawyers can determine if you are eligible to file a wrongful death claim. To file the claim, an estate will need to be opened, and a family member must be appointed personal representative of the estate. The personal representative can then file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the estate and seek monetary compensation.
Potential Compensation in Brooklyn Wrongful Death Cases
Potential damages in a Brooklyn wrongful death case might include compensation for any of the following:
Loss of financial support arising from the decedent's death
The personal representative of the estate may also be able to claim pain and suffering damages from the time the decedent began suffering from his or her final injury or illness. Lost wages incurred from this time might also be compensable.
Finally, the personal representative might be able to pursue compensation for healthcare, nursing home, and medical costs that the decedent incurred up to the time of his or her death.
Our experienced Brooklyn wrongful death lawyers can review the circumstances surrounding the decedent’s death and determine which of these items of damage may be applicable to the facts of your case. We can then pursue those damages on the estate’s behalf.
