Passenger Fatalities in New Jersey
For a wrongful death claim to be viable, the respondent must have violated their duty of care to the deceased. The standard of negligence in these cases is usually based on the actions that a reasonable person would have taken under similar circumstances.
If a reasonable person would have acted more cautiously or with more care, the respondent could be found negligent. For example, if a driver above failed to act safely by not following driving laws, then they have violated the duty of care they owed to the deceased.
