In New York, Crashes Result In Over 1,000 Fatalities Each Year

Anyone who has lost a close family member in a fatal traffic accident knows how painful such a loss can be. Not only is it emotionally difficult, but it nearly always represents a significant financial loss to next of kin. The loss of a breadwinner can leave a family in dire straits without an income to pay monthly expenses. The loss of a homemaker can leave a family bereft of guidance and care in everyday life. The loss of a young child is one loss many parents never get over. The lost potential is undeniable.

Despite the obvious heart-wrenching aspects of a fatality, personal injury law in New York takes into account economic losses when determining how family members will be compensated. This means the earnings of the deceased will determine dollar amounts to be paid to a surviving husband, wife, mother, father, son, or daughter. This type of calculation pertains to death itself.

When Auto Accidents Trigger Suffering Leading To Fatal Outcomes

However, there is another loss associated with a traffic fatality that the law also acknowledges. That is the pain and suffering the deceased person went through before death. We humans naturally understand that someone experiencing a violent death must feel pain as well as devastating emotions such as terror or hopelessness. Furthermore, close family members who witness or know of the period of suffering of a loved one have their emotional trauma to deal with. A wrongful death claim that includes a claim for the pain and suffering can bring acknowledgment of these profound losses in the form of monetary compensation.

At The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny, we work hard to recover all compensation a client is eligible for. Our attorneys collaborate closely with forensic pathologists who help document a car accident victim’s pain and suffering. This is one example of the care and diligence we apply to every wrongful death case.
