Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in New Jersey?

Knowing someone who passes away in a fatal accident does not qualify you for filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party that caused their death. Being emotionally devastated by their passing is also not legal grounds to file a claim. In New Jersey, only certain people can file a wrongful death claim based on their relation to the decedent.

You can file a wrongful death lawsuit in New Jersey if you are related to the decedent as a:

  • Spouse
  • Child or grandchild
  • Parent
  • Sibling, niece, or nephew
  • Dependent adult

Damages You Can Demand in a Wrongful Death Claim

The loss of a loved one will be emotionally and financially damaging. Bills for final medical care alone might put you at risk for bankruptcy. As important as it is to seek justice and closure, it is just as important to remember that a wrongful death claim can help you regain financial stability by holding the liable party accountable for all the damages you have experienced as a result of their negligence.

In a wrongful death claim, the following damages may be recoverable:

  • Final medical costs
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Wages the decedent would have earned in life
  • Loss of companionship, parental guidance, and support
