Wrongful Death

     When a person dies because of injuries caused by the wrongful acts and negligence of another, that failure to use ordinary care is actionable on behalf of the estate of the deceased and his heirs. The heirs normally are the spouse and children who received benefit from the deceased during his or her life.

Some accidents may result in the wrongful death of a family member. Under New Jersey law, a close relative or family member may bring a civil action against the negligent and responsible parties who caused the accident resulting in your loved one's death. While any recourse will not bring your loved one back, it is essential that the responsible parties be held accountable for their actions. Mr. Mark will aggressively fight for this right.

     If a loved one has been killed in an accident, it is important to contact us right away to review the facts of their fatal incident. If after our free initial consultation you decide to pursue a claim for wrongful death, we will file the necessary documents against the person or business responsible for the accident.

     We understand that no amount of monetary compensation will bring back your loved one, but we also strongly believe that people must pay for their actions. Additionally, the money recovered from a wrongful death lawsuit can assist with any outstanding medical expenses, funeral costs, as well as income replacement if the deceased was the primary income earner.

Some of the most common accidents which may result in a wrongful death include:

  • Accidental death
  • Auto accidents
  • Premises liability
  • Construction accidents
  • Defective products or dangerous materials
  • Medical malpractice
  • Daycare injuries
