How to Handle a Wrongful Death Case
Beside the emotional trauma there is often a significant financial hardship caused by a wrongful death, especially if the decedent was supporting a family. Economic compensation for a wrongful death includes all medical, nursing and funeral expenses as well as loss of future income or support.
In addition, non-economic compensation can be obtained. This applies to any pain and suffering that occurred to the person before they passed. Factors that contribute to this include the personal injuries before dying, the severity of pain and the duration of suffering.
There are so many emotions present when a loved one dies. Likely you are not immediately thinking about compensation for your losses. However, if a wrongful death does take place, it is important to act as soon as you can. The statute of limitations in New York generally gives you 2 years after the loved one has died to file for court for a wrongful death. In certain instances that time frame may be reduced to as little as 90 days. Therefore, it is imperative to document details immediately and have a lawyer to protect your rights as soon as possible. At Palermo Law, we will take care of your case while you take the time you need to grieve the loss of your loved one.
