Wrongful Death

Jersey City Wrongful Death Lawyers Serving Jersey City, Newark Union City and Northern New Jersey

Helping families recover compensation following the wrongful death of a loved one

Not all personal injury lawsuits are brought by the injury victim themselves. Sometimes, an accident is so severe that the victim dies as a result. When life is lost as the result of a negligent act, the surviving family members can seek compensation for the loss of their loved one through a wrongful death lawsuit. If you have lost a loved one and think negligence may be the cause, do not take any chances with your rights. Contact experienced personal injury attorneys in the jurisdiction where the accident or incident occurred. In Jersey City, Newark or Union City, contact Zavodnick, Perlmutter & Boccia, LLC.

What types of damages can be recovered in a wrongful death suit?

Generally speaking, the types of damages that can be recovered via a wrongful death action include:

  • Compensation for expenses related to costs for medical care up to the death of the victim
  • Compensation for expenses related to addressing the death of the victim and for losses based on the aftermath of that death
  • Conscious pain and suffering endured by the victim

The first of these items is self-explanatory, but the second is more complex. First of all, it includes compensation for funeral expenses for the deceased. A reputable wrongful death attorney often uses the services of economists or financial analysts to determine other losses related to the death such as:

  • Lost wages that the deceased would have reasonably earned over the remainder of his or her lifespan
  • Costs of medical care

These are very real costs that only an experienced personal injury attorney can help you calculate and obtain.
