New Jersey Wrongful Death Lawyer

Legal Representation After an Accidental Death

Under New Jersey law, a wrongful death is a death caused by someone else’s careless, reckless or deliberate actions.

After an unexpected death, families may be too immersed in shock and grief to consider monetary compensation surrounding their family’s loss. Medical, funeral and other costs related to the death can pile up quickly. In addition, if a family losses a wage-earner, it’s lost some or all of its means to pay those and other bills.

A wrongful death lawsuit can never bring a loved one back or right a wrongdoing resulting in a person’s passing; but it can help families thrown into a financial crisis by a death they never could have anticipated. In some cases, a lawsuit can also compensate you for emotional losses, and punish wrongdoing by the person or organization responsible for your loss.
