WRONGFUL DEATH IN NEW JERSEY--SOME BASICS

When your loved one has died because of the wrongful act of another person, the grief can paralyze you. But you have a right to pursue compensation for your losses-for the loss of support, the loss of companionship and guidance, and any out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of the death. Here are some basic guidelines to help you understand and protect your rights in a wrongful death action in New Jersey.

THE TYPES OF DAMAGES IN A WRONGFUL DEATH LAWSUIT

If you have lost a loved one in New Jersey because of the negligence or carelessness of another person, you may be entitled to pursue compensation for your losses. See our blog on who may file a wrongful death action for more information.

NEW JERSEY'S STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS ON PERSONAL INJURY

When you have a legal claim based on someone else's wrongful conduct, whether it's the failure to perform according to the terms of a contract, or a lawsuit for injuries sustained in an accident, you must file your claim within a specific period of time or it will be barred. There are a number of reasons for this rule, known as the statute of limitations. It helps ensure that evidence doesn't get lost and that memories don't fade. It also ensures that a person doesn't live for a long period of time with a potential claim hanging over his or her head.

WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIMS--AN OVERVIEW

If your loved one has died because of the carelessness or negligence of another person, you have a right to pursue compensation for your losses. A lawsuit can't bring your loved one back, but it can minimize the financial hardship you suffer as a result.

Recovering Damages for Wrongful Death

Recovery Compensation after the Death of a Loved One

When a loved one dies because of the carelessness or negligence of another person, no amount of money can bring them back. No financial recovery can restore you to the life you had before their death. Nonetheless, you have a right to hold those responsible accountable for their actions, and you have a right to pursue full and fair compensation for your losses.

NJPD OFFICER KILLED IN READ END COLLISION

An on-duty NJPD officer clocking for speeders was killed last month when a tractor-trailer vehicle rear-ended his parked car on a highway shoulder, without attempting to stop prior to the impact - according to the roadway evidence at the scene. At the time of his death, Officer Christopher Goodell, 32, was the second officer to perish within the line of duty that month, said prosecutors.

FETAL HEART MONITORING AND BIRTH INJURIES

Fetal heart monitoring is essential in alerting nurses and doctors to potential problems during birth. During labor, fetal heart monitoring can signal the onset of fetal distress and other problems that may result in the need to perform a C-section or undertake certain delivery maneuvers during birth. In most cases, fetal distress results in insufficient oxygen to the brain, resulting in cerebral palsy and other hypoxic injuries. The long-term effect of hypoxic brain injury can include cognitive impairment, physical and mental development difficulties, brain damage, and speech problems.

CAUSES OF TRUCK ACCIDENTS

Though the weight restrictions on commercial vehicles vary from state to state, under federal guidelines, a semi or 18-wheeler can carry up to 80,000 pounds. When a truck carrying that much weight collides with a passenger vehicle, the consequences can be devastating. Unfortunately, it happens way too often, and for a variety of reasons.
