Information About New Jersey Wrongful Death Claims
In New Jersey, a person can bring a wrongful death lawsuit if a loved one died because of another party’s carelessness or recklessness. One can also bring a claim if the death was deliberate but still wrongful, such as when someone died because of an assault. One way to think about a wrongful death case is to ask the question, “Had the deceased lived, would he or she have been able to file an injury claim?”
There are limits on who can file wrongful death claims in New Jersey. The law stipulates that the most important factor is the degree of relationship between the plaintiff and the deceased. For example, a very distant cousin might not be eligible to file a wrongful death claim, except in very specific circumstances. There are also time limits on wrongful death claims in NJ; a wrongful death claim must be filed within two years of the death. Our personal injury attorneys advise clients about their eligibility for wrongful death lawsuits and help them file all required paperwork within the appropriate time limits.
