Handling Death Cases in New York (05/14/2021)

Program Number: 3166 Presenter: Andrea Alonso, Esq.

To recover damages for a person’s death in New York State, there are two distinct causes of action: survivorship and wrongful death. While the survivorship cause of action belongs to the estate for the decedent’s pain and suffering prior to death, the wrongful death cause of action compensates those statutory distributees who have suffered pecuniary loss as a result of the decedent's death. Consequently, there may be more than one plaintiff in a death case as well as separate statutes of limitations for each cause of action. Due to these distinctions, an attorney must assess each action independently of the other. Join us to learn the distinction between survivorship and wrongful death.

The Dram Shop Act: An Update (03/16/2021)

Program Number: 3165 Presenter: Andrea Alonso, Esq.

Dram Shop liability arises out of a vendor’s duty to the public not to sell liquor to visibly intoxicated people, so while legislation seeks to shift some responsibility to alcohol providers, violations are often difficult to prove. New York’s Dram Shop Act affords individuals who are injured as a result of another’s intoxication a cause of action against the party that unlawfully sold, provided, or assisted in providing, the alcohol to the intoxicant. The legislation targets vendors, usually a bar or restaurant, that sell alcohol to visibly intoxicated adults, and social hosts who knowingly allow minors to drink.

Handling Death Cases in New York (12/04/2020)

Program Number: 30290 Presenter: Andrea Alonso, Esq.

There are two separate and distinct causes of action in death cases: survivorship cause of action and wrongful death. ● Survivorship cause of action belongs to the estate for decedent’s pain and suffering prior to death. ● Wrongful death cause of action belongs to distributees who have suffered pecuniary loss by reason of death. In any death case, there will be a unified trial. The Burden of proof is still the plaintiff’s, but not as high a burden as in death cases. For wrongful death damages, decedent’s estate is entitled to collect interest at the rate of 9% from date of death to date of judgment, governed by Section 5-4.2 of the Estates, Powers and Trusts Law (hereinafter the EPTL). Join Andrea Alonso as she helps attorneys to familiarize themselves with the two distinct causes of action and what is and is not recoverable under each.

The Dram Shop Act: An Update (11/13/2020)

Program Number: 30272 Presenter: Andrea Alonso, Esq.

New York’s Dram Shop Act affords individuals who are injured as a result of another’s intoxication a cause of action against the party that unlawfully sold, provided, or assisted in providing, the alcohol to the intoxicant. The legislation targets vendors, usually a bar or restaurant, that sell alcohol to visibly intoxicated adults, and social hosts who knowingly allow minors to drink. Alcoholic Beverage Control Law §65 defines an unlawful sale of alcohol. It is illegal for any vendor of liquor to sell, deliver, or give away alcoholic beverages to any person who is under 21 years of age or “visibly intoxicated.” General Obligations Law §11-101 provides a right of action against a vendor who unlawfully sold alcohol to an intoxicated individual. In order to recover under GOL §11-101, a plaintiff must prove that the vendor unlawfully sold or procured alcohol for the intoxicant while the intoxicant was “visibly intoxicated” and
