What is a survivorship claim?

Survivorship claims are brought by the estate of the deceased for the pain and suffering the deceased endured before death, as well as for any medical expenses and lost wages incurred from the time of the injury to the time of death. These claims are separate from wrongful death claims, which focus on the losses suffered by the deceased’s family members. Our New Jersey wrongful death & survivorship lawyers are experienced in handling both types of claims and will work diligently to secure the compensation your family deserves.

What is a wrongful death claim?

Wrongful death cases arise from the unlawful death of a person due to negligence, often in the form of preventable accidents (e.g., car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, etc.).

Maybe your loved one died in a nursing home, assisted living facility, or hospital as a result of abuse or neglect. It could be that someone you love was killed in a fatal car accident caused by a drunk driver or by someone texting and driving. Or your family may have experienced the catastrophic loss of a newborn during delivery or immediately after birth because of a doctor’s medical malpractice.

Whatever circumstances you’re dealing with, contact our law firm right away to see if we can help. Our New Jersey wrongful death attorneys can review the details of your case, answer your questions, and help you understand your legal options.

Can you sue a prison for wrongful death?

In general, if your loved one was serving time in prison as an inmate and suffered an accidental death due to negligence, abuse, neglect, or medical malpractice, you may be able to recover compensation through a wrongful death claim. There are a lot of things to consider when suing a prison for wrongful death, such as whether your loved one was in jail or prison, whether it was a public or private institution, and the specific details surrounding your loved one’s death.

Cases involving the unlawful death of an inmate serving time in jail or prison are complicated and can be difficult to handle on your own, which is why you should contact our New Jersey wrongful death attorneys as soon as possible for a free and confidential consultation.

How much is my wrongful death claim worth?

Every case is different, which means the total value of your wrongful death claim will depend on the specific details of your case. Generally, you may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Your loved one’s pain and suffering
  • Your loved one’s medical expenses
  • Funeral costs and burial expenses
  • Your loved one’s expected income
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages

If you want to learn what your claim could be worth, contact our law firm right away. Our New Jersey wrongful death lawyers can review the details of your case and see what you might qualify for in compensation.
