Wrongful Deaths in New Jersey

Middle Village, NJ - Pedestrian Killed by Unlicensed Driver at Metropolitan Ave and Rentar Plaza

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. 

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.  

Our New Jersey 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.
