WHAT RIGHTS DO FAMILY MEMBERS HAVE AFTER A FATAL ACCIDENT?
If your family member died in a work-related accident, you have a right to benefits from New York workers’ compensation regardless of who was at fault. You have this right no matter where you live or whether your family member was a legal U.S. resident.

Our lawyers will investigate the accident to uncover all parties who may be liable in your loved one’s death. Then we will seek maximum compensation for your family for emotional distress, loss of financial support and other damages. We can handle your case for you, so you will not have to travel to New York.
