Helping Families Pursue Justice After Tragedy
The death of a loved one is always tragic, but when the death is the result of another’s negligence or recklessness, the loss is especially heartbreaking. Through a wrongful death claim, surviving family members can pursue justice and compensation for their loss. At The Law Offices of Mark E. Weinberger P.C., our compassionate attorneys offer guidance and support while helping you through the claim process.
When Is A Wrongful Death Claim Appropriate?
To bring forth a wrongful death claim in New York, you must be able to demonstrate the at-fault party had a legal obligation to prevent the death and they failed to do so, resulting in the death of your loved one. If the decedent would have been justified in making a personal injury claim against the party responsible for the accident had they lived, the surviving family members likely have grounds for a wrongful death suit.

Tragedy Should Not Result In Financial Hardship
While no amount of money can make up for the tragic and unexpected loss of a loved one, compensatory damages from a wrongful death claim can help with unforeseen costs and lost income. The law allows you to recover compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral and burial costs
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages and benefits
- Loss of companionship and care
