Manhattan Lawyers for Wrongful Death Claim
“A man’s dying is more the survivors’ affair than his own.” – Thomas Mann
Pain. Shock. Disbelief. Sorrow. Anger. These are all feelings you’re likely experiencing if you’re grieving the untimely loss of a loved one. When someone you love dies because of another person’s fault or negligence, these feelings can be even stronger than when the death is caused by natural or unavoidable forces. Dazed and numb, as if you’re in a dream, you’re re-living memories of the last words you heard them say. Through the haze is the prospect of a wrongful death claim. We are here to help you navigate this new normal.
As you swim through these emotions and memories, it can seem impossible to take care of necessary tasks such as funeral planning, sifting through your loved one’s belongings, and taking care of legal documents and bills that were in his or her name. The financial burden of accomplishing these tasks can also be incredibly daunting, especially amidst the emotional pain of unexpectedly losing someone you love.
If you find yourself in this type of situation, having lost a loved one due to someone else’s fault or negligence and dealing with the financial repercussions of their death, legal action is clearly in your favor. A wrongful death claim, with the help of the representation of Greenberg & Stein, P.C., could aid you in recovering some of the costs that you and your family currently face.
What is a wrongful death claim?
The Legal Dictionary by Farlex defines wrongful death as “The taking of the life of an individual resulting from the willful or negligent act of another person or persons.” Thus, if you and your family are suffering the loss of a loved one who was killed because of another person’s “willful or negligent act,” your family is likely eligible for recovery of expenses related to this tragic event.
Some types of deaths caused by the fault of another person or entity that may lead family members to file a wrongful death claim are:
- Automobile accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Construction accidents
- Personal injury
- Airplane accidents
- And others…
If you are unsure if your loved one’s death is considered “wrongful death,” please call Greenberg & Stein and have us evaluate your situation.
