Wrongful Death Attorneys in New Jersey

At Krivitzky, Springer & Feldman, we understand that losing a loved one in a tragic accident is life-changing. For more than 40 years, our caring wrongful death attorneys have helped grieving families cope with the overwhelming emotional and financial impact they suffer when a loved one is lost due to someone else’s negligence.

We guide you through the process of identifying any insurance policies, death and funeral expense benefits, or other coverage that may be immediately available. Our team can assess your case and help you pursue all possible sources of compensation in your wrongful death claim.

Proving Fault in Wrongful Death Claims Throughout New Jersey

The most difficult aspects of a wrongful death claim are proving how an accident occurred and who is at fault. Because the person who has passed isn’t around to tell their story, witness statements, physical evidence, and other documentation are crucial to providing an accurate account of what happened. Our lawyers have more than 95 years of combined experience proving liability, even when it’s uncertain in the initial stages of a case.  

Our team conducts thorough investigations in every wrongful death case, which may include identifying witnesses and collecting police reports, video surveillance footage, and medical records. These elements come together to help us understand the series of events just before the fatal accident occurred. When liability remains unclear, we may consult accident scene re constructionists to review any evidence from the scene and provide expert opinions, drawings, video re-enactments, or other visual aids.

Recovering Compensation in Wrongful Death Cases

We examine all potential sources of recovery in wrongful death accidents. For example, if a distracted motorist driving in a poorly marked construction zone caused an accident that led to your loved one’s death, we may be able to recover compensation from the at-fault driver and the construction company. We evaluate every possible aspect to determine fault and help you get the maximum recovery you deserve. We’ve helped thousands of clients with wrongful death claims involving:
