Wrongful Death

New York Lawyers Handling Wrongful Death Claims

Accidents and situations that cause injuries can also potentially cause deaths. When a death occurs in one of these situations, the resulting lawsuit is deemed a "wrongful death" lawsuit. Taking action against a negligent party cannot bring your loved one back, but it can help begin the healing process and may get you the compensation you deserve for your loss.

For more than 45 years, the law firm of Tolmage, Peskin, Harris, Falick has been assisting families that have lost loved ones in wrongful death accidents. This experience has helped us become well-respected within the legal community and well-versed in laws that are specific to New York state.

Who Is Eligible To Seek Compensation For A Wrongful Death?

One such law governs the type of individuals who can and cannot receive compensation for the loss of a loved one. Survivors of the person who perished because of another's negligence can receive compensation for wrongful death only if they show that they have suffered a financial (pecuniary) loss.

Our wrongful death lawyers can ensure that your rights are preserved and that you receive every dime you are owed if you are eligible for compensation under this law.

We have many years of experience with wrongful death cases and can assist you in choosing the best course of action to minimize the trauma to your family and maximize the compensation you may receive.
