Wrongful Death And Survivor Actions

In New Jersey, a wrongful death is a death caused by someones else’s careless, reckless or deliberate actions. Businesses, people and organizations can be held responsible if the death caused by an accident could have been prevented had they been reasonably careful. Compensation may cover costs of medical expenses, financial losses, or loss of companionship.

The death of a loved one is a devastating occurrence, especially if it could have been prevented. Families of the victim of wrongful death in New Jersey are entitled to seek monetary compensation for the financial losses sustained as a result of that death. Serafini and Serafini are here to help recover these losses in wrongful death claims.

Nearly any type of accident can be grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit, including:

An unexpected death in the family is often shocking both emotionally and financially. Due to the nature of losing someone close to us, we often aren’t aware of the magnitude of the expenses piling up from medical, funeral or a myriad of other costs incurred following a death. If the bread-winner in a family is lost, it can be nearly impossible to cover these costs or maintain their lifestyle without compensation. If a wrongful death is the result of a murder, the family may bring a lawsuit even if there is a criminal case pending.

Our firm works closely with experts to investigate wrongful death claims and to collect any documentation and witness information needed. If your loved one was killed in a fatal car crash, workplace accident, or medical malpractice, we will work together to recover compensation for your claim.
