Losing a loved one, no matter how it happens, can be devastating — especially if the loss of life is unexpected. Unfortunately, lightening the load and easing one’s grief may simply seem impossible. When the loss of life is the result of negligent actions, surviving family members may have legal recourse. Following a fatal accident, a wrongful death claim may be filed in a New York civil court by the victim’s loved ones in an effort for them to seek relief.
Family members of those killed at the hands of others will, understandably, have a desire to know how it happened, why and who is at fault. Sometimes accidents are just that — accidents. However, there are others that can clearly be linked to negligent actions. Proving negligence, though, can be a bit of a challenge
If you have lost a loved one and suspect negligence played a role in the fatal accident, you may seek the assistance of an experienced attorney to review your case. After all, going it alone in one’s fight for relief and justice may not produce the most favorable results.
