Wrongful Death

New Jersey Wrongful Death Attorneys

When you lose someone close to you, your life may change in countless ways. When the loss is unexpected, you may find yourself overwhelmed by new challenges. When the loss occurs because of the negligence, neglect or wrongful act of another, anger and sadness can combine to make the situation feel unbearable. Wrongful death lawsuits cannot get you back what you have lost, but they can help you keep your life on track while you deal with the pain. At Costello & Mains, LLC, in Mount Laurel, NJ, we help individuals and families that have lost loved ones in cases involving wrongful death.

Do I Need A Lawyer Following A Fatal Accident?

Fatal accidents, including car and truck accidents, workplace fatalities, and other deadly incidents, often involve negligent conduct. The New Jersey wrongful death statute allows certain people to bring an action for damages against the wrongdoer. Many factors are used to determine whether and how much a loved one may recover following such an accident. To understand your rights and assert them in settlement negotiations or to a jury, you should seek the advice of a skilled attorney.

While it may seem unfair to force a surviving spouse or child to fight for proper compensation after they lost someone to negligence, the compensation is often coming from someone who feels no personal responsibility for the death. An insurance company does not feel guilty when one of its clients causes a death. Companies are often more concerned with profits over the well-being of the family of a deceased employee. You and your attorney must be willing to go through the legal process to seek a judgment or jury award to get full and fair compensation under the law.
