Wrongful Death Laws in New York
In New York, wrongful death actions are directed by The New York Estates,
Powers, and Trust Laws (EPTL). Under EPTL Section 5-4.1, the legal representative
of the estate is given the right to bring a wrongful death action. EPTL
Section 5-4.3, the pecuniary loss statute, covers the amount of recovery.
The deceased individual's legal representative must bring evidence
of economic loss. Our firm understands how to collect and calculate information
related to pecuniary loss, including the loss of earnings, loss of services,
loss of parental guidance, and more.
The key to effective representation is a New York City personal injury
attorney who understands all of these factors and how to calculate them
properly in order to maximize your recovery and bring peace of mind.
