When a family member is wrongfully killed in Cape May County, New Jersey as a result of another’s reckless or careless actions, surviving family members are entitled to monetary compensation under New Jersey law.

Call me, Joseph Monaco, and I will work tirelessly to make sure your family recovers the full amount of compensation it deserves.
Compensation for damages in Cape May County Wrongful Death cases are somewhat different than the damages recoverable in a typical personal injury claim. The wrongful death laws of New Jersey focus on the relationships and the financial support family members received from the victim before his needless and unexpected death. However, typical dames such as pain and suffering and medical bills are recoverable if there is a period of time between the incident causing the death and the actual date of passing by the victim. Cape May County Wrongful Death damages can be economic and non-economic losses.
Cape May County Wrongful Death Economic Damages:
- Medical bills for care received before the victim’s death
- Lost wages for any periods of disability before the victim’s death
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of financial support by family members who were financially dependent on the victim
- Market value of household services previously performed by the victim
Cape May County Wrongful Death Non-Economic Damages:
- Market value of assistance, care, training, guidance, advice, counsel and companionship formerly provided by victim
- Pain and suffering by victim before moment of passing
In addition to the emotional toll, financial hardships arising after a wrongful death may be worse than you or other family member’s expected. A loss of income or a caregiver can have a significant impact that leads to a sense of hopelessness. Consequently, it is crucial that you phone me for help.
