New York And Long Island Wrongful Death Lawyers

Appointing a Fiduciary to Bring Wrongful Death Lawsuits

In situation where an individual has died due to misconduct or negligence of another, compensation can be obtained by family members. The process of recovering for these inappropriate actions or misdeeds is called a wrongful death lawsuit. Wrongful death lawsuits cannot be initiated by family members. A fiduciary must be appointed to bring this proceeding. The process of appointing a fiduciary requires a legal action be initiated in the Surrogate’s Court and that a fiduciary, whether it is an administrator or executor of a will, must be appointed in this Court. At the end of the case, the fiduciary makes a distribution whether pursuant to the terms of the will or pursuant to succession laws.
