What Kind of Compensation Will I Get?

According to New York law, the deceased’s estate can claim the following damages in a wrongful death lawsuit:

  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of inheritance
  • Medical expenses incurred related to the deceased’s death
  • Funeral expenses
  • Damages for loss of assistance and support, loss of services and loss of guidance in the case of a deceased parent or spouse

Our wrongful death lawyers locate every responsible party and build a strong case. Our goal is to hold these parties accountable for their actions and the significant strain that your family now feels. In doing so, we may be able to prevent future catastrophic tragedies. You could help future families by moving forward with your case.

RMFW Law has obtained a number of substantial recoveries in wrongful death claims, through both settlement and trial. For example, we represented the family of a 69-year-old woman who was burned on 30 percent of her body when the hot water valve and handle in her shower broke. The scalding water knocked her to the ground. Our client was conscious for more than two days before she was placed in a medically induced coma. She died two months later. Our attorneys sued the owner and manager of the apartment complex and our efforts led to a $3 million dollar settlement before trial.

I Chose The Right Attorney - “Attentive, Professional and Know About the Law…”

I referred Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff to a friend needing help with a birth injury & medical malpractice case. Having worked with founding partner Daniel Minc myself on a car accident case, I was sure they would be able to deliver results.
