Defining Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is a legal term used in cases where a death is caused by the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of a third party. It is a broad term that encompasses many cases such as car accidents, workplace accidents, medical malpractice, product liability cases, premises liability cases, nursing home abuse and neglect, and more. In some cases, criminal acts such as assaults and homicides can be classified under wrongful death. In the state of New Jersey, the family members of the deceased can seek justice and compensation against the at-fault party. This compensation can include costs such as medical and funeral expenses, loss of income, and loss of services. Surviving spouses, children, grandchildren, parents, siblings, and other close family members can be eligible to receive payment for these losses. Our Brick wrongful death lawyer will help you file a wrongful death lawsuit against the liable party in order to pursue this compensation.
