Who Can Bring a NY Wrongful Death Action?

Unlike many other states, New York does not allow a family member to file a wrongful death action for the loss of a loved one unless that family member is the personal representative of the decedent’s estate. The personal representative can pursue damages for family members and for the estate.

Damages in a wrongful death case may include:

  • Funeral/burial costs
  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages and other benefits
  • Loss of support, service, care, companionship, and guidance
  • Conscious pain and suffering experienced prior to death
  • 9% interest on damages awarded, starting from the date of death

Surviving family members may not recover financial compensation for their own pain and suffering, though children may recover damages for the loss of a parent’s care, support, and guidance.
