Help Is Here For The Loved Ones Of Wrongful Death Victims
Losing a loved one too soon because of someone else’s recklessness or negligence is devastating. At Laufer, Dalena, Jensen, Bradley & Doran, LLC, we understand.
We have worked with hundreds of people throughout New Jersey who lost a relative or spouse to a negligent accident. Whether your loved one suffered a car accident, motorcycle accident, construction accident or any other sort of fatal accident, we can help you hold the perpetrator accountable and recover maximum compensation.
Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim In New Jersey?
Not just anyone can file a lawsuit after someone’s tragic passing. In New Jersey, only the following people have the right to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit:
- The executor of the decedent’s will
- The personal representative of the decedent’s estate
If the deceased person did not have a will or did not name a personal representative, a judge will appoint someone to fill the position. The people eligible to recover compensation in a wrongful death claim include the decedent’s spouse, parents, children, grandchildren, siblings and other blood relatives.
Helping You Beat The Statute Of Limitations
The state of New Jersey has a two-year statute of limitations on wrongful death cases. This means that you and your wrongful death attorney or personal injury attorney must file a claim within two years from the date of your loved one’s passing.
If you miss this deadline, you lose the right to have your day in court. With our team’s considerable skill and knowledge, we can build a strong case for compensation as time-efficiently as possible.
