Under New York law, it is well-established that an accident victim can take legal action against the person or entity that negligently causes an accident. Personal injury or tort lawsuits ensure that people or companies who are negligent and who break the law must pay financially for their actions. Injury lawsuits also ensure that victims of negligence or wrongdoing do not end up suffering uncompensated out-of-pocket losses as a result of what happened to them.
Accidents and situations that cause injuries can also potentially cause deaths. When a death occurs in these types of situations, the resulting lawsuit is deemed a “wrongful death” lawsuit. Taking action against the negligent party cannot bring your loved one back, but it can help begin the healing process and may get you the compensation that you deserve for your loss.
If someone is killed as a result of the negligence of another person, family members need experienced counsel to minimize the financial trauma the death can cause and to make sure the person or entity responsible is held accountable for the loss.
