Wrongful Deaths in New Jersey
For a wrongful death claim to be considered, the defendant must have violated their duty of care to the deceased. The standard of negligence in these claims is based on the actions that a reasonable person would have taken in a similar situation.
If a reasonable person would have acted more cautiously or with more care, the defendant could be found negligent. For example, if a driver failed to act responsibly by not obeying driving laws, then they have violated the duty of care they owed to the victim.
