Who Can Bring A Claim For Wrongful Death Benefits?
In New York, a wrongful death claim can only be brought by certain individuals, who are statutory beneficiaries of the decedent's estate. This includes the spouse, child or parent of the deceased. Additionally, the personal representative can bring the claim. Typically, other relatives such as siblings or cousins cannot bring a claim, though it depends on the facts of the case.
