New Jersey Wrongful Death Lawyer

Fighting for Grieving Loved Ones Since 1987

The death of a loved one affects every area of our lives. The emotional impact can leave us traumatized for years, especially with sudden and accidental deaths. When a traumatic event takes away our spouses or parents, the loss of income makes life even harder for us or our children. Through it all, victims are haunted by the fact that no one has answered for their loved ones’ death.

Wrongful death lawsuits are claims where courts allow spouses, children, and certain family members to hold at-fault parties liable for the damages caused by a loved one’s death. These damages include both economic and emotional losses—and in many cases, will include punitive damages that exist solely to punish the offending party. Accidents caused by serious negligent demand a different level of civil justice—that’s what wrongful death suits provide.

Damages claimed by grieving family members include:

  • Loss of present income
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of consortium (for spouses)
  • Loss of parental influence (for children)
  • Emotional pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses
  • Outstanding medical bills from the accident

Common Questions

  • How is a personal injury claim different from a personal injury lawsuit?

    If you wish to hold the person responsible for your injuries liable, it is important to know the differences between a claim and a lawsuit. A personal injury claim is the first step, when your attorney files against the parties responsible or liable for the injury. A personal injury lawsuit comes after the claim, taking place in a court of law, if the original claim did not yield the compensation desired by the plaintiffs.

  • What is negligence?

    Negligence is one of the key aspects of any personal injury case. Negligence occurs when a person or party does not act with the proper amount of care and caution that a reasonable person would use to prevent harm or injury to another individual, or when the person or party does something harmful that a careful and reasonable person would not have done in a similar situation.

  • How important is negligence to my case?

    Negligence is perhaps the most integral factor in an injury claim or lawsuit, and in order to fight for justice against the liable party (also called the defendant), you must first be able to prove their negligence and that it is the direct cause of your injuries.
