Wrongful Death Claims In New York

Losing a loved one in a fatal accident — especially when the loss resulted from someone else's negligence — is a traumatic, difficult time. While grieving your loss is the most important consideration, it is also important to consider the potential for a wrongful death claim. For many families that have lost their primary financial provider, wrongful death compensation might be the only means of income for the foreseeable future, so hiring the right wrongful death attorney could be a matter of survival.

At Restivo & Murphy LLP, our lawyers represent clients in Long Island, Suffolk County and Nassau County, as well as throughout the five boroughs of New York City. With more than 40 years of combined legal experience, our attorneys can help you obtain damage award compensation for:

  • Loss of income
  • Loss of support and services
  • Medical and funeral costs
  • Pain and suffering the deceased experienced before death
  • Punitive damages

Every case is different. Certain damage awards for noneconomic losses and punitive damages are not available as a general rule. But there are circumstances that allow for these damages, which could substantially increase your overall compensation award.

Our attorneys have a reputation for maximizing our clients' compensation awards. We take the time to research every possible avenue for compensation, and we fight aggressively in the courtroom to make sure each client obtains the maximum level of compensation available. We will do everything we can to make sure you earn the maximum award possible in your case.
