A wrongful death case arises as a consequence of another party’s negligence or recklessness. His or her estate can bring a wrongful death lawsuit and can be awarded damages for the beneficiaries of the deceased. In New York, a wrongful death law suit must be filed within two years of the date of death. The person who will end up filing a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the deceased plaintiff will often be the plaintiff’s closest surviving relative.
