How to Evaluate a Wrongful Death Claim

Wrongful Death ClaimIf you have lost a loved one due to the negligent or reckless actions of another individual, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for the untimely death by filing a wrongful death claim. Since many wrongful death actions typically lead to litigation, it is imperative that you hire an experienced New York wrongful death attorney to help you get the full compensation that you deserve for this tragic event.

Factors Affecting Litigation of Wrongful Death Claims

When a wrongful death claim is forced into litigation, the insurance company will consider various factors in evaluating the claim and ultimately agreeing to a settlement figure.

Some common factors that the adjuster will consider include:

  • Economic losses
  • Pain and suffering damages allowed under the appropriate New York wrongful death statutes
  • Sex and the age of the deceased
  • Amount of economic loss
  • The jury’s likely perception of you as a witness in the event your case goes to litigation
  • The insurance policy limit
  • The identity and status of the at-fault party
  • The skill and reputation of your New York wrongful death attorney

Your attorney will advise you about each of these elements and assist you in getting a better idea about how much you should reasonably expect in financial recovery.

A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
