Wrongful Death

Dying is a natural consequence of being human- it will happen to everyone sometime, but it shouldn’t happen at the hands of someone else. Wrongful death is defined as a death as a result of wrongful actions by someone else, unlike intentional death, which is murder.

Wrongful death can include:

  • Vehicular manslaughter
  • Death due to neglect or abuse
  • Death as a result of assault and/or battery
  • Death as a result of carelessness (negligence)
  • Death in the course of another crime (shot during a robbery)

Wrongful death is more than just wrong, it can be damaging to an entire family who are left behind to deal with the sudden and needless death of a loved one.

If someone you loved was killed, and you believe you have a case for wrongful death, you need to contact a skilled personal injury lawyer who has extensive experience in wrongful death cases. Where can you go? Visit Jersey Personal Injury, fill out the simple online form, and be matched up with a New Jersey personal injury lawyer who will look over your case, advise you on your rights, give you wise legal counsel, and stand by you and your family until justice prevails.

In a wrongful death case, you can sue for loss of companionship (for spouses or children) and financial compensation for loss of a lifetime of expected financial support (for dependent spouses and children who’ve lost parents). A wrongful death suit may be filed by the administrator (executor) of the estate, or by the beneficiaries or family. Fighting to win in a wrongful death case is difficult, can take months to years, and is draining emotionally and mentally, but the right New Jersey personal injury lawyer will make everything work for you.
