What Compensation Can a New Jersey Wrongful Death Lawyer Recover for You? 

There is no amount of money that can ever make up for the loss of a close family member or friend. However, monetary compensation may be able to assist in relieving some of the financial strain that has been placed on you and your family as a direct result of their passing. Bringing a lawsuit for wrongful death is one way to ensure that your deceased loved one is given some form of justice.

Garber Law, P.C. will make every effort to pursue financial compensation on your behalf for the following:

  • Loss of income – The amount of money that the victim would have made and provided to his or her family if he or she hadn’t died. 
  • Loss of services – Economic worth—not sentimental value—of the services, support, direction, and guidance the victim would have supplied to their immediate family. 
  • Funeral and medical expenses – These damages might be shown with the use of bills and receipts to identify a reasonable amount for compensation.

When a loved one dies unexpectedly, the pain and suffering that the rest of the family goes through is hard to imagine. But under New Jersey’s wrongful death law, family members can only sue for “pecuniary damages,” which are real financial losses. This means that in a claim for wrongful death, emotional damages are not given to the family left behind. In the same way, punitive damages are not usually given in a lawsuit over an accidental death in NJ.

But you might still be able to get emotional damages through a different type of claim in New Jersey, along with a claim for wrongful death. For example, surviving family members who saw the death and were severely impacted by it may be able to file a claim for negligent infliction of emotional distress to get money for their emotional pain. Also, New Jersey’s Survival Act allows the estate of the deceased to collect compensation for the pain and suffering that person went through right before they died. If these damages are awarded, they are added to the estate and could be given to the people who are still alive.

Garber Law, P.C. will investigate all of the potential legal channels through which financial compensation can be pursued for the loss of your loved one. You can count on us to offer you the direction and assistance you require to make it through this trying time as you and your family concentrate on the healing process.

Frequently Asked Questions about Wrongful Death Claims in New Jersey

How much time do I have before I lose my right to sue for wrongful death?

In the state of New Jersey, a wrongful death case cannot be filed after the expiration of the statute of limitations, which is set at two years. The beginning of this time frame is determined by the date that the victim passed away. Therefore, it is essential to seek the advice of a knowledgeable New Jersey wrongful death lawyer to ensure that you don’t miss any important dates. Your attorney will get the process of seeking compensation and holding those responsible for your loved one’s death started as quickly as possible.

Who can file a wrongful death claim in New Jersey?

In New Jersey, a claim for wrongful death is usually made by the person in charge of the estate of the deceased. As part of a claim, the money for damages is given to surviving family members who depended on the person who passed away or who has a legal right to inherit under the laws of the state.

There is a hierarchy that determines who will be compensated first in the event that damages are awarded for a death that was caused by another party’s negligence. It is common practice for a deceased person’s surviving children and/or spouse to be awarded a percentage of the final recovery. However, if those members of the deceased’s family have also passed away, the deceased’s living parents will take precedence. Only in the event that neither parent is still alive can siblings, nephews, or nieces file a claim for damages.
