Taking Action for Family Members Who Have Lost a Loved One
The untimely death of a loved one is a tragic event that will impact many lives. The grief, anxiety and emotional turmoil can be overwhelming. You may never fully make your peace with such a loss.
The law firm of Britcher, Leone & Sergio, LLC, helps families throughout New Jersey who have lost loved ones due to the careless and negligent actions of others. When a loved one dies in this manner, a wrongful death claim may help your family address financial concerns.
What Kinds of Compensation Can Be Sought After a Fatal Accident?
In the aftermath of a death, it is understandable that you may not immediately think about money. However, the financial losses associated with the death of a spouse, parent or another loved one are no less real than your emotional losses.
Damages of a wrongful death can include:
- Loss of future earnings
- Loss of advice, guidance, companionship and counseling
- Medical expenses
- Funeral expenses
Financial compensation is the sole remedy available in wrongful death claims. We understand compensation cannot fix your grief and pain, but it may also be necessary and important for your family. Our law firm will build a strong case designed to help you recover all available damages – and reclaim a measure of justice through the legal system.
Fatal Car Accidents
After a fatal accident with a motor vehicle, whether a car, truck or motorcycle, surviving family members are often in a state of shock. If you have lost a loved one in an auto accident, contact us to learn if we can help your family.
Fatal Medical Errors
Medical malpractice wrongful death claims often involve surgical errors, undiagnosed heart attacks, hospital errors and medication mistakes. When a medical mistake results in an otherwise preventable death, family members rightfully want to know what happened and why. Our attorneys can help you find answers.
Our law firm represented the estate of a man who died because of a failure to diagnose hepatitis C. When an unnecessary surgical procedure ultimately led to liver failure and death, we worked hard to obtain an award totaling $3.38 million against two physicians for his estate.
