Atlantic City Wrongful Death Lawyer
The decision to pursue a Atlantic County, New Jersey Wrongful Death Claim as you are in the process of grieving over the loss of a family member can be very traumatic. However, it is extremely important not to delay the hiring of a lawyer because wrongful death cases need to be investigated as soon as possible before evidence is lost or destroyed. Big corporations and insurance companies begin their investigations immediately following a loss because they know it is to their advantage. Don’t delay and make their advantage even greater. A loved one wrongfully killed can never be replaced but monetary compensation can help offset the financial hardships you and other family members are now facing. If you believe a loved one has been wrongfully killed, call me, Joseph Monaco, Atlantic City wrongful death lawyer, to learn your rights and receive guidance in how to achieve justice for your loss.
An Atlantic County wrongful death case is very different from a criminal case. In fact, criminal charges are not filed by the Prosecutors’s Office in vast majority of wrongful death cases. For he family to recover, it must be shown that the defendant was reckless or careless in causing the death. The burden of proof in a civil wrongful death case is by the “preponderance of evidence,” not beyond a reasonable doubt as would be the case in a criminal trail. Preponderance means that it is more likely true than not true that the Defendant’s actions caused the wrongful death.
