Gersowitz Libo & Korek P.C., a personal injury law office with more than three decades of experience, recently launched a website focusing on informing grieving families about their rights under the Grieving Families Act that has passed the New York Senate Assembly and is expected to be signed into law by Governor Kathy Hochul. The website is designed to educate grieving families whose relatives may have passed away due to the recklessness and negligence of others.

The newly-launched site aims to inform the public about their rights following the wrongful death of a loved one, and the options family members have in these situations. Topics covered include finding justice for grieving family members, particularly informing families about their rights in the event of an untimely death related to a car accident, aviation accident, product malfunction, and workplace accidents, among others.
As a top-rated award-winning law firm, Gersowitz Libo & Korek P.C. has provided legal counsel to New York and New Jersey residents for over 30 years. Their extensive resources and experience in the practice area of personal injury and wrongful death cases inspired the firm to create the web page. Their goal is to ensure grieving family members have the required information about their rights during the difficult time of losing a loved one. With lay people generally uninformed about their legal recourse in the case of undue death, Gersowitz Libo & Korek hopes to provide helpful information and pertinent legal advice.
The law firm hopes to inform victims’ families that the Grieving Families Act may expand rights and means of justice to those who have lost a family member due to the negligence and recklessness of others. Specifically, the new act may help families cover expenses related to the funeral, pre-death medical fees, and other related costs. This may be particularly helpful to families who may have lost their loved one and primary financial support.
The Grieving Families Act website has several other sections, including an FAQ section, a blog, a live chat option, and a contact form. The team at Gersowitz Libo & Korek provides prompt, compassionate, advice and aggressive legal representation to uphold the rights of victims and their families.
