When a family experiences a sudden and tragic death caused by someone else’s carelessness or recklessness, a lawsuit is not a primary priority. We understand that there are many stages of the grieving process that must occur before a widow, children, or other family members are ready to speak to a lawyer about a wrongful death case in Bucks County, Pennsylvania or Mercer County, New Jersey.
Swift recovery is necessary in wrongful death cases so that the family can get back to daily life.
Surviving spouses and children often wonder how they will ever recover, both emotionally and financially, without the loving care and household contributions of the person killed in a tragic accident. Some families may have adequate financial and household resources available, but the vast majority of families involved in a tragic death caused by an accident are not financially prepared. Families with young children especially suffer from the losses of a fatal accident.
In Pennsylvania and New Jersey, a wrongful death case is the name of the personal injury case brought to recover for the losses experienced when a spouse or family member is fatally injured. Both PA and NJ each have their own sets of complex wrongful death laws which determine who can recover and what can be recovered for the wrongful death of a loved one.
Wrongful death case recoveries in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including Bucks County, Mercer County and Philadelphia, can include loss of income of the Decedent and the loss of his or her services to the household. Other wrongful death damages include medical bills, funeral bills, and pain and suffering experienced prior to death by the victim.
It is important to retain a personal injury lawyer with wrongful death case experience. PA and NJ wrongful death cases are very complex. Apersonal injury attorney in a wrongful death case must be able to comfort the grieving family, must know the law inside and out, and must know how to fight a wrongful death case. Wrongful death cases in NJ and PA often times involve experts such as accident re-constructionists, engineers, economists, and other experts.
