What Should I Know About Wrongful Death Car Accident Cases in NYC?

There is simply nothing more devastating than losing a loved one as a result of another person’s careless actions. Unfortunately, countless people are made victims in wrongful death car accident cases every single year here in New York City and around the country. If your loved one lost their life because of a dangerous driver on the road, you can turn to an experienced Bronx car accident attorney from our firm who can help you pick up the pieces. Here are some of the questions you may have about the legal process ahead:

What are the most common causes of wrongful death car accident cases?

Car accidents, as you know, can happen for a variety of reasons, but they are most frequently caused by driver negligence. Driver negligence comes in several forms, but some of the most common are as follows:

  • Texting while driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving while inebriated
  • Talking on the phone while driving
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Ignoring traffic lights or signs
  • Applying makeup while driving, or any other type of distracted driving

If your loved one was involved in an auto accident with a driver who was taking any of the aforementioned actions at the time, there’s a strong chance you will be entitled to compensation.

What damages are recoverable in wrongful death car accident cases?

Though monetary compensation simply can never replace the value a loved one added to our lives, it can, at the very least, help an accident victim’s family hold the right parties accountable and attain a sense of justice. As long as we can satisfy the burden of proof in your wrongful death claim, you should recover compensation to help you deal with:

  • The cost of medical treatment provided to your loved one before their death
  • The cost of funeral and burial expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship or guidance
  • The cost of services your loved one would have provided
  • The cost of lost wages provided by your loved one
  • The loss of enjoyment of life
