Nothing is quite as devastating as knowing that a loved one has died by reason of the negligent or intentional conduct of another person. Our attorneys have recovered millions of dollars in successful settlements and jury verdicts on behalf of the estates of victims of wrongful death in all types of personal injury cases.
The wrongful death of a loved one permanently affects the lives of their family members.
Bringing a wrongful death claim against a defendant allows the victim’s estate to recover monetary damages for their emotional and financial losses. New Jersey’s laws permit family members to recover compensatory damages for lost earnings, and loss of care, comfort, support advice and guidance of the victim. Lost earnings claims typically extend through the victim’s intended retirement age.
In New Jersey, a survival action claim is commonly included within a wrongful death lawsuit. This statute allows the estate to file a claim for injuries and losses, just as the decedent would have. It typically includes compensation for injuries, medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, pain and suffering, and fear of impending death due to a sudden accident or prolonged suffering related to the injuries. Any damages recovered go to the decedent’s estate and benefit any dependents or heirs.
Witnessing the death of a spouse, a child or a close family member is a tragic, traumatizing experience. When someone has suffered through this type of event in New Jersey, they are entitled to file a separate claim for negligent or intentional infliction of emotional distress in conjunction with the wrongful death lawsuit.
Close family members: if you are in the immediate family of the deceased, then you can file a wrongful death claim.
Financial dependents: individuals who are financially dependent on the deceased can file a claim. This can include a domestic, life, or punitive partner.
Distant family members: in some cases a family member can be considered distant, yet be eligible to file a wrongful death claim. This is typically the case if the family member has some close connection to the deceased – for example, a grandparent who raised their granddaughter.
