When a victim dies in an accident caused by the negligent actions of another, a wrongful death usually follows close behind. New York personal injury laws say that the personal representative of a victim’s estate is able to bring a claim against the person or entity who is responsible for the victim’s death. 

A wrongful death claim can stem from any kind of personal injury, such as a car crash, premises liability, medical malpractice, wrongful deaths, workplace accidents, plane crashes, and product liability. An experienced wrongful death attorney in New York can help determine if you qualify.
