Few things in life are as devastating as losing a beloved spouse or family member. When someone is killed due to another person’s negligence, it can be unbearable, and money certainly can’t replace a loved one.
No matter how much compensation you receive, it will never come close to making you whole again. What compensation can do for you is help ease the financial burdens caused by a wrongful death.
At Schibell & Mennie, LLC, we seek justice on your behalf when a family member has been taken away by a senseless act or accident.
In New Jersey, family members have legal standing to file a lawsuit when a spouse, parent, sibling, or other family member has been killed due to a person’s or an entity’s negligence, recklessness or criminal act.
The New Jersey Wrongful Death Act gives relatives who depended on the deceased individual for support a right to file a claim for damages. In most cases, the law compensates survivors for the financial support they would have received had the deceased lived a normal life.
Wrongful deaths happen in many different ways. In some cases, a person takes the life of another through murder or during the commission of another crime.
The law gives surviving family members the right to file a civil case, even when the criminal matter is still pending. In most cases, wrongful deaths are the result of negligence or carelessness.
Our legal team has helped families obtain compensation and justice in a wide range of wrongful death cases, including cases involving:
When people act negligently, they usually don’t intend to take a life. But when their bad choices end up depriving someone of a future, they should be held accountable for their actions.
