A wrongful death claim arises from another party’s negligence or intentional act, just like a personal injury claim. However, in a wrongful death claim, the decedent isn’t here to file a personal injury claim. As such, the law allows for a personal representative to file a wrongful death claim in their absence seeking compensation for the damages resulting from their death. Basically, a wrongful death lawsuit can be pursued if the victim– could have pursued a personal injury lawsuit against another party if they had not died.
Examples of potential wrongful death claims include:

The representative, usually through a New Jersey wrongful death lawyer, files the lawsuit on behalf of surviving family members who are entitled to inherit from the victim through New Jersey’s intestacy laws. Those family members can include:
