Do not delay — a two-year time limit applies
It may be difficult to think long-term so soon after the death of a loved one, but it is immensely beneficial to discuss the deadly accident with a qualified wrongful death attorney. A wrongful death action in New York must be filed under strict deadlines, and any delay can result in lost evidence and irreparably may damage your case. Wrongful death lawsuits must be filed within two years of a death or one year from the date you reasonably should have known that someone else was responsible for the death.
Once you suspect negligence played a role in the death, you should contact an attorney and provide as much information as possible — medical records, the death certificate, accident or police reports, and information about the wrongdoer or possible witnesses. This information can hasten the evaluation process. The sooner you contact us, the faster and more efficiently a lawyer at our firm can work on your case.
