Wrongful Death in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Florida

What Defines a Wrongful Death?

Under New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida laws, a wrongful death occurs when a wrongful act, neglect, or default of another person leads to the victim's demise. If the negligence is such that the victim could have pursued a personal injury claim had they survived, the personal representative of the deceased’s estate is allowed to initiate a wrongful death claim against the negligent party.

Successful Claims

The settlement or jury award from a successful wrongful death claim is distributed to the victim's heirs and beneficiaries, including spouses, children, parents, and other dependents. Determining a reasonable amount of compensation can be challenging, but the law acknowledges several factors for consideration, including:
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Lost earnings between the time of injury and death
  • Future earnings and benefits loss
  • Loss of companionship and parental guidance
  • Lost household services and support
  • Any conscious pain and suffering endured by the deceased
  • Medical expenses, ranging from emergency treatments to long-term cancer care due to medical negligence
  • Emotional distress of a family member who witnessed the fatal incident
  • Punitive damages for deaths resulting from especially outrageous or reckless acts
