Losing a family member in an unexpected death is a shock and a devastating loss. If that death was the result of another party's negligence or misconduct, it can be even more grievous. In such cases, immediate family members of the deceased person may be able to seek legal recourse through the courts for financial compensation.
Ask for guidance from our Palmyra wrongful death lawyers. Foley & Foley serves Rochester and Wayne, Monroe, Cayuga, Seneca, and Ontario Counties. We handle personal injury and wrongful death claims of all kinds.
In most cases, wrongful death claims are subject to a two-year statute of limitations. In New York, the estate of the deceased person may submit the claim on behalf of those family members financially impacted by the death.
