The negligence of another can cause the death of a loved one in an accident. This is even more devastating when you know that the accident could have been prevented but was triggered by the negligence of another party. After such a gruesome tragedy, surviving family members are often left with not only an emotional burden but many times a financial one including expensive medical bills and a loss of income.

In New York, the estate of the deceased can bring a claim on behalf of those who have been financially impacted by the wrongful death. At Gabriel Law Firm, we are here to guide you through the process and help you collect the maximum compensation for the negligence of another.
Since wrongful death actions are brought on behalf of the deceased party’s estate, the first stage typically involves the designation of a personal representative. Once all of the information has been gathered concerning the survivors and the cause of death, a claim for damages is made.
The Right Attorney Can Make All the Difference!
The first step you should take is to hire a lawyer. This lawyer can open up an estate in probate court and that becomes the jurisdiction for the wrongful death court case. Another way to go about this is to file in district court the wrongful death case on behalf of the beneficiaries for the wrongful death case. Then, you can proceed with litigation on the wrongful death and/or survival claim.
