New Jersey Wrongful Death Car Accident Lawyers
Nothing is quite as devastating as knowing that a loved one has died by reason of a car accident, bus accident, truck accident or other motor vehicle accident.
Wrongful Death Car Accidents & Liability
In New Jersey, the family members of people killed in car accidents can pursue two types of damages on behalf of the deceased person: wrongful death damages and survivorship damages. New Jersey wrongful death damages allow the lawyer to pursue damages for the family’s loss of the deceased person’s income. New Jersey law also allows for recovery of damages for the loss of the care, comfort, support, advice and guidance of the deceased family member. This can take the form of emotional support, physical care, advice and other valuable services. Lawyers customarily hire an economist to value such wrongful death damages for a jury.
New Jersey law also allows the family to recover pain and suffering damages for the person killed in the car or truck accident. Pain and suffering damages can include physical pain, as well as emotional distress suffered by victim.
