- Wrongful Death
Wrongful death is a preventable accident that occurs as a result of the negligent actions of a person or business that leads to a loss of life. We know that you are overwhelmed with grief and the last thing you want to do is worry about filing a lawsuit. We want you to know that the best thing you can do in this situation is tell your story to one of our compassionate wrongful death attorneys. We are here to do everything we can to ease the impact of your loved one’s passing and hold the responsible party accountable.
By filing a lawsuit at no cost to you, you and your family can gain back stability by receiving due compensation for:
The New Jersey Wrongful Death Act governs wrongful death cases. Generally, Only the following people have the right seek a wrongful death claim:
If a person dies and has no surviving qualifying family, the estate reserves the right to make a wrongful death claim. Once the estate receives the compensation, it will be distributed under the guidelines of the Will or under the respective state’s intestate laws.
Wrongful death cases are similar to other personal injury cases, but with a few more requirements.
Our attorneys will work on your behalf to show that the accused party was acting negligently, and that their negligent act led to your loved one’s death. This is not always so easy. Just because someone acted negligent (for example ran a red light) it is not automatically assumed that whatever injuries were a result of the accident led to that person’s death. Our attorneys have experience dealing with complex cases and know how to prove your case in court.
Many wrongful death cases settle for between $500,000 and $1 million, and sometimes even more. This value is calculated by the actual losses your family has incurred and will incur in the future. While past case results are no guarantee of future performance, you can definitely rest easy knowing that our Personal Injury Attorneys will fight relentlessly to get the highest compensation possible for your or your loved one’s personal injury claims.
