Staten Island Wrongful Death Lawyer

When a person dies as a result of an accident it is a tragedy. It happens suddenly, leaving the family members behind to pick up the pieces. There are many steps that must be followed to obtain fair compensation for the death of a loved one. First, an estate must be established with the Surrogate's Court. Then a lawsuit must be instituted against the persons responsible for the accident. The amount of money the survivors are entitled to is a combination of the pain and suffering the decedent suffered before their death and compensation for the survivors who were dependent on the decedent for support.

To prove damages, an expert in emergency room medicine and an economist must be used.

My office is familiar with the process to pursue a wrongful death case in New York and New Jersey.
