Wrongful Death Compensation in New York

Depending on your specific situation, you may be able to recover compensation for a variety of damages and losses.

What does wrongful death compensation in New York usually cover?

  • Wages and benefits that the deceased could have earned
  • Medical bills from the accident prior to the deceased's death
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Value of the deceased's support to family members

New York does not provide damages for pain and suffering to surviving family members. But the wrongful death claim can include pain and suffering that the deceased may have felt prior to death.

In New York, only personal representatives of the deceased's estate may file for a wrongful death claim, and not the family members. To learn more about whether you are able to file a wrongful death claim for your loved one, turn to the Rochester wrongful death attorney at The Law Office of Robert King.
