Strong Representation For Grieving Families
When someone intentionally or unintentionally causes the death of a loved one, you have a right to hold the responsible party accountable. Although legal action cannot reverse the injustice that has occurred, it could bring you and your family financial relief and a measure of closure.
These cases require a sensitive, respectful and determined approach. The wrongful death attorneys at Bailey, Johnson & Peck, P.C. understand the gravity of the situation you face. We will stand by your side during this difficult time.
How Legal Action Can Make A Difference
The potential outcomes of a wrongful death claim include:
- Compensation for your loved one’s medical costs and funeral expenses
- Compensation for the loss of your loved one’s income and household support
- Awarded damages for your loved one’s pain and suffering
- A sense of closure and justice for your family
- Honor for the memory of your loved one when they cannot speak for themselves
Only eligible parties can initiate a wrongful death claim within two years of the death. In New York, eligible parties may include the decedent’s spouse, children, parents or personal representative of the estate. If you believe you have a wrongful death claim, our attorneys can work closely with you to find evidence of causality and prove the extent of the loss you have suffered.
