Wrongful Deaths in New Jersey
In order to claim damages, the respondent named in a wrongful death claim must have breached the duty of care they were expected to show the deceased.
The standard of negligence in a wrongful death claim is the action that a reasonable person would have taken under the same or similar circumstances. If a sensible person would have acted with more care or exercised more cautiousness, the respondent will most likely be held responsible.
For instance, if a driver behaved carelessly by breaching a driving law, then they have failed to uphold the duty they owed to the deceased.
