5 Star Review on Personal Injury Lawyer

Thank you for standing by me and believing in me. You never gave up on me. When the odds were against me and I felt I didn’t have a chance, you kept reassuring me not to give up hope. I still can’t believe the amount after the deposition. I felt I didn’t stand a chance. You are the most amazing person and I am indebted to you forever! To my hard working attorney

5 Star Review on Personal Injury Lawyer

Leonard Law Firm went beyond the norm to ensure our case was settled. He was an exemplary lawyer whose services were a nice welcome considering all the aggravation my wife and I would have gone through had he not covered all aspects of our case. We are so thankful to him and his office. His knowledge of the case set our lives at ease. He was relentless until the case was fully settled and all was in our favor. Thank you so much. We highly recommend his office to anyone.

We Handle Fatal Car Accident Cases

When a loved one dies in a fatal car accident caused by another driver’s negligence, the victim’s family may file a personal injury wrongful death lawsuit to hold the negligent party accountable for the financial and emotional losses.

Determining liability for a fatal car accident is a complex and difficult process. After an accident, it is important for the parties involved to obtain contact information from any witnesses present at the scene. This can help the police investigation. When recklessness or carelessness was involved in a fatal accident, a claim for negligence exists.

In New Jersey, family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit if the individual who died in the accident was no more than 50 percent at-fault for the accident. That means that any compensation recovered as a result of the accident is reduced by the percentage of fault assigned to the deceased driver.

Types of car crashes

Every car accident is unique. However, there are a number of common kinds of car accidents that may result in fatalities:

  • Single car accidents
  • Head-on collisions
  • Side impact crashes
  • Rear-end crashes
  • Rollovers
  • Multi-vehicle crashes
  • Commercial vehicle crashes
  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Road rage
  • Distracted driving
  • DWI/DUI
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Auto-defects

If negligence was involved in the fatal car accident, the plaintiff may be entitled to compensation for losses and damages that include the following:

  • Loss of guidance for children
  • Loss of advice/companionship
  • Lost wages
  • Lost income
  • Lost health benefits
  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of future income
  • Conscious pain and suffering of victim

The pain of living with the death of a family member is devastating. Our law firm will be with you every step of the way, and will fight to get your family the justice they deserve. If you lost a loved one in a car accident due to the negligence or recklessness of another person or entity, call the experienced New Jersey wrongful death attorneys at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm.

I would recommend my friends to them - and my family members.
