Wrongful Death Cases in NY; Why Give Surviving Family Money? http://www.Oginski-Law.com/ NY Medical Malpractice & Personal Injury Trial Lawyer 516-487-8207 Email: Gerry@Oginski-Law.com There are some people who believe that in a wrongful death case in New York, the surviving family should get nothing. Their rationale for believing this is "The person who died is no longer here and able to appreciate the money. So why should we give the family money at all?" In NY, there's a very clear reason. When someone is careless and causes injury or harm or death to someone else, the careless person or company is obligated to repay a debt to that person or to the surviving family. Obviously, no one will be able to bring back someone who died. However, the money is specifically designed to compensate an injured victim and her family for all the harms and losses they suffered as a result of the wrongdoing. When a wrongful death case goes to trial here in New York, if the jury determines that a person or company is legally responsible for the harms, injuries and death, then those same people are now legally obligated to repay that debt to the survivors. There are of course different types of damages and losses which must be accounted for. To fully understand what type of damages might be available and to learn more about how wrongful death lawsuits work here in NY, I encourage you to get a copy of my book "In Case of Death." http://www.oginski-law.com/reports/in-case-of-deathhow-to-find-your-way-after-your-loved-one-died.cfm I wrote the book specifically for surviving family members who've suffered tragedy.
