Lawyers Representing Family Members Of Fatal Accident Victims

If your family member died in a car accident, you may not feel ready to discuss your legal options with an attorney. Your family needs time to grieve. Unfortunately, the insurance company of the other side may not give you that time.

At Smith Magram Michaud Colonna, P.C., in Burlington, New Jersey, we know that nothing can make up for the loss your family has experienced. However, you have rights that need to be protected. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions.

Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable

Most fatal car accidents do not happen by accident. They happen because someone choose to do something that put others at risk. Examples of risky behavior are driving under the influence or talking on a cellphone while driving. Excessive speed is a factor in many fatal accidents.

Police responding to a fatal auto accident hear a one-sided view of what caused the accident. Our job as attorneys is to pick up the investigation where the accident report leaves off. Then we use the civil justice system to hold the wrongdoer accountable.

Under New Jersey’s wrongful death statute, your family can recover damages such as:

  • Medical bills incurred prior to death
  • Your loved one’s conscious pain and suffering
  • Your loved one’s projected earnings
  • Loss of consortium and companionship
  • Loss of the services your loved one performed
