A New Jersey wrongful death claim is a way for a victim’s family to hold an at-fault party civilly responsible for a fatal car accident. Compensation may be available for funeral bills, medical expenses, lost future wages, and pain and suffering. In cases involving a single-car crash in New Jersey, it is particularly important to seek representation because insurance companies often tend to assume that human error was the primary cause of the crash.
