A Wrongful
Death Case
Must Be Filed
Within Two Years
of the Date
of the Death
of Your
Loved One

The Statute of Limitations for both New York and New Jersey specify that you must present your wrongful death case two years from the date of the death of the victim. However, in some cases, there is an additional much shorter deadline which requires the filing of an intention to proceed with a case.

To do so, the administrator of the decedent’s will must file the case on behalf of the beneficiaries. If no will exists, the beneficiaries and their financial share of the case compensation will be determined by a judge. Furthermore, an estate must be set up with a "personal representative" to handle the filing. Such a representative can be a child, spouse or a parent. In the case of a child, it may require a guardian to act on behalf of the child if the two-year filing limit is in jeopardy. These are some of the things a reputable law practice like Foulke Law Firm will manage for you, advising and guiding you through these complicated rules.

Wrongful Death Cases Rarely
Go To Court and Are
Most Often Settled Prior to Trial

It is customary for insurance companies to attempt to reduce the value of your claims of loss for the purpose of avoiding their responsibility of compensating you for the full and just amount they should. This means that your lawyers will be fighting on your behalf to prove what your case is really worth and convince them to pay what you deserve. A common tactic by insurance companies is to try to blame the victim for the accident or event which ended in death. In some cases, there may be some truth to this claim but rarely at 100%. Also, it does not cancel your right to file a wrongful death claim. If the victim had some fault in the event, it will be calculated at some realistic percentage and your compensation will be reduced by that amount.
