Can A Sibling File A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

Did you lose a sibling due to the negligence of another party in New York? Watch this video by dedicated New York wrongful death attorney Mark Shaevitz to find who can file a wrongful death claim on the behalf of the decedent.

You can file a wrongful death claim for a sibling only when that sibling is the closest family member that exists. In another words, if there is a wife that exists than the wife would have to claim. Children of the deceased would also come before a sibling when filing a wrongful death claim for a family member.

Loss is never easy, but the pain of losing a loved one too soon can feel unendurable.  In addition to your grief, you are likely plagued by questions about why and how such a thing could occur.  When you find out someone else is to blame, you may be understandably angry, especially if the death was preventable.

At Shaevitz & Shaevitz, we hold responsible parties accountable for their negligence and we will fight hard to secure the compensation you need to move forward with your life.
