New Jersey Wrongful Death Lawyers
Under New Jersey law, a wrongful death is a death caused by someone elseís careless, reckless or deliberate actions. A wrongful death can be a murder, and you may bring a lawsuit even if thereís a criminal case pending. More often, wrongful deaths are caused by "accidents" that could have been prevented if the people, businesses or organizations responsible had been reasonably careful.
Nearly any type of accident or incident can cause a wrongful death in New Jersey, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Bicycle accidents
- Defective products
- Lack of security to prevent violent crime
- Wrongdoing by law enforcement
- Occupational exposure to asbestos and other toxins
After an unexpected death, families may be too immersed in shock and grief to consider monetary compensation surrounding their familyís loss. Medical, funeral and other costs related to the death can pile up quickly. In addition, if a family losses a wage-earner, itís lost some or all of its means to pay those and other bills.
An NJ wrongful death lawsuit can never bring a loved one back or right a wrongdoing resulting in a personís passing; but it can help families thrown into a financial crisis by a death they never could have anticipated. In some cases, a New Jersey wrongful death lawsuit can also compensate you for emotional losses, and punish wrongdoing by the person or organization responsible for your loss.
