Wrongful Death

Wrongful death cases can make life seem unfair—we understand

The loss of a loved one is always difficult, but can especially be hard when the death is due to negligence. Severe personal injuries from events such as car accidents and workplace accidents unfortunately sometimes result in death.

Don’t hesitate to contact a New York wrongful death lawyer. Our attorneys in Buffalo provide personal attention and determined representation for clients throughout the state of New York.

James Morris’ compassionate team is here to assist you in getting closure and compensation. For a free and confidential consultation, call (800) 477-9044.

What is the purpose of a wrongful death lawsuit in New York?

A wrongful death suit allows the family of the deceased to recover monetary losses associated with the death of their loved one, such as loss of income. Criminal charges may or may not be associated with the death. That does not necessarily affect the outcome of a wrongful death suit.

Professional negligence can frequently play a role in a wrongful death suit when the incident occurs at a workplace, such as a construction site accident. The type and extent of the damages that are awarded depend mainly on how responsibility is established. The deceased may be held partially responsible for his or her own death, depending on circumstances.
