Queens Wrongful Death Lawyer Keetick Sanchez Explains What Qualifies as Wrongful Death in New York

Queens wrongful death lawyer Keetick Sanchez releases a new article (https://accidentlawyer-queens.com/what-qualifies-as-wrongful-death-in-new-york/) explaining what qualifies as wrongful death in New York. The lawyer explains that someone who lost a loved one due to the negligence of someone else may be entitled to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party.

“Historically, if someone caused the death of another person, they could only be charged under a variety of criminal laws, depending on the circumstances. This would punish the perpetrator and perhaps even lead to jail or prison time. In the meantime, the family of the deceased was left with their loss and the costs associated with that loved one’s death. The at-fault party was in jail but this did nothing for the grieving family,” says the Queens wrongful death lawyer.

The lawyer adds that wrongful death is defined as a death caused by someone else’s wrongful act. It does not matter if the act was done accidentally or intentionally, wrongful death claims have very specific criteria and compensate for very specific losses.

Attorney Keetick Sanchez adds that a wrongful death claim is very similar to a personal injury claim. The main difference between these two claims is that the person who would normally be entitled to personal injury benefits is no longer alive. The surviving family members will be responsible for the damages and losses of the deceased person in a wrongful death claim.

In the article, attorney Sanchez adds, “Losing a loved one is hard especially if it is caused by someone else’s negligence. However, if you delay in asserting your rights and seeking compensation for the wrongful death you may lose valuable compensation. This could make the situation more difficult than necessary.”

Lastly, attorney Sanchez emphasizes the importance of having a skilled wrongful death lawyer when it comes to matters such as wrongful death claims. Having an experienced lawyer may be able to help the client understand their rights and receive compensation for the pain they suffered.
