Lakewood, NJ - Nine-Year-Old Killed in Rollover Accident on Garden State Pky

If an injured person who ultimately dies due to another’s negligence would have been entitled to file a personal injury claim had they survived, then a wrongful death suit is most likely applicable to the situation.  

Wrongful death is a phrase defining an accident during which one person dies due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence, or due to someone else inflicting deliberate harm.

Claims of wrongful death are brought against parties who are responsible for someone’s death through either negligence or malfeasance. These claims provide the deceased’s family or their estate with a tool for bringing a suit against the individual deemed liable for the death. 

Our New York wrongful death attorneys have assisted the families of hundreds of these kinds of victims. We recognize the devastating reality of these cases. Losing someone you love to the negligent acts of another party is a singularly distressing experience; one for which the law offers a legal remedy.
