Wrongful Death and Survival Actions
New Jersey's Wrongful Death Act provides the decedent's family members damages for the financial losses the survivors have suffered and will suffer in the future. Under New Jersey law, damages available in a wrongful death action include:
- Medical expenses and health care costs incurred before death
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of future earnings and benefits
- Economic value of the services, assistance, care, training , guidance, advice, counsel and companionship the survivors would have received from the decedent had he/she lived
The family of a person killed in an accident caused by the negligence of another may also be entitled to seek damages for pain and suffering the decedent sustained before his or her death in a separate survivorship action.
