Vehicle Crash Fatalities in New Jersey
In order to collect damages, it must be proven that the defendant in a wrongful death case breached the duty of care they owed to the deceased.
The measure of negligence in a New Jersey wrongful death case is the action that a sensible person would have reasonably taken in the same or a similar situation. If a prudent person would have exercised more caution or behaved with more care, the defendant will probably be held liable.
For example, if a motorist acted recklessly by violating a driving law, then they have breached the duty they owed to the deceased.
