Wrongful Death

The death of a loved one is an extremely difficult event for the family members left behind. If the death was preventable, it can be even more difficult. In this emotional time, it is important to understand all of your rights if your loved one was the victim of negligence or abuse that led to a wrongful death. In fact, the Administrator or Executor of the Estate is entitled to file a claim against the responsible party. The last thing you need is to postpone the grieving process to focus on complex legal matters, entrust the wrongful death lawyers at the law office of Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP® to take care of the legal process.

It is important to note that if your claim is accepted, New York State law enables you to gain financial compensation not only for the economic loss that resulted directly from the death of your loved one, but also for the pain and suffering that your loved one experienced. 

There are several factors taken into account when determining how much money will be awarded to the Estate in the form of damages. These factors include:

  • The character, habits and ability of the deceased
  • The services the deceased would have performed
  • The portion of the deceased’s earnings that would have been spent to care for and support the family
  • The intellectual, moral and physical training, guidance and assistance that the deceased would have given any children

In order to make sure that you receive the greatest amount of money possible, it is crucial that you let us assist you.
