There is nothing more catastrophic in life than the unexpected death of a loved one. When a loved one dies suddenly, the victim’s family not only has their grief to deal with, but the death often results in a loss of crucial income and support that can make life even more difficult. Unfortunately, many families suffer unnecessarily after a loved one is killed in an accident because they are unaware that in wrongful death situations, where the death was caused by another party’s negligence, they are entitled to recover damages for the losses they have incurred. As a wrongful death attorney in Passaic County, Robert J. Bavagnoli is dedicated to helping local residents get back on their feet. If you have recently lost a loved one due to wrongful death, the compassionate team at Bavagnoli & Bavagnoli is here to help.
What is Wrongful Death?
In New Jersey, wrongful death is defined as a death “caused by a wrongful act, neglect, or fault of another.” In a wrongful death lawsuit, since the deceased person cannot bring their own personal injury claim to court, another party such as their spouse or children may bring a claim on their behalf.
There are many scenarios that can be considered wrongful death. Traffic accidents, slips and falls, drowning, acts of violence, and medical or surgical errors caused by another party’s negligence are just a few common causes. While this may sound straightforward, wrongful death cases can be complicated, especially when it comes to proving liability. Because in-depth investigations and expert testimonies are key to establishing liability, it is essential that victims get in touch with a qualified Passaic County attorney as soon as possible.
