MR. IRA SLAVIT: Has negligence caused the death of someone you love? If you think you have a wrongful death case, our firm, Levine & Slavit can help. We have handled these sensitive cases that can arise in car or automobile accidents, accidents in buildings, accidents from defective products, accidents on sidewalks and accidents at construction sites and medical malpractice. Because the law in New York does not allow the survivors to be compensated for their emotional loss, it could make a big difference in the outcome of the case as to what attorney you use. Choosing an aggressive, creative attorney can make a difference in trying to maximize the recovery, especially when the death has happened to someone who is not a wage earner, such as a child or a homemaker. In that situation, because the New York law limits wrongful death recovery to the pecuniary, or financial loss, it's sometimes necessary to try to bring to the court and jury's attention the pain and suffering that the decedent went through.
