Compensation and Damages for a Wrongful Death Case

New Jersey law places strict time limits for filing wrongful death claims. Since all wrongful death claims in New Jersey must be filed within two years of the death of the victim, it is important to retain counsel as early as possible after the death in order to protect the right to wrongful death monetary compensation.

There are actually two separate remedies for wrongful death:

  1. A survival action is similar to a personal injury lawsuit, seeking compensation for the victim’s pain and suffering prior to death.
  2. A wrongful death action is filed on behalf of the intestate dependent heirs of the victim for their pecuniary loss. It provides compensation for hospital, medical and funeral expenses incurred for the deceased, loss of income and financial support from the deceased, monetary value of the guidance, advice and care of the victim, and the value of household services provided by the deceased.
