New Jersey wrongful death attorneys have seen it all. We’ve heard the horror stories. We’ve seen the sorrow in families’ eyes of those who have lost a loved one.
Recently, our New Jersey wrongful death attorneys heard some very sad news on both the local and national level. Two teens lost their lives last week after being struck by a high-speed Amtrak train in Norwood, Pa. Also last week, Marie Osmond’s 18-year-old son Michael Blosil took his own life. Add on the news about the earthquake in Chile this past weekend, and it’s been a rough seven days for everyone.
According to Suicide.org, there were 32,637 suicides in the United States in 2005. Exactly 536 came from New Jersey and 1,430 occurred in the state of Pennsylvania. Even though New Jersey and Pennsylvania rates are low compared to other states, those are tough numbers to swallow. Multiply those numbers by the amount of people affected, and the results are astronomical.
Suicide is never the answer
As a New Jersey wrongful death attorney, we know how much pain people experience when they lose someone they love. If you’re having any suicidal thoughts, please tell someone. Tell anyone. Whether it’s your best friend or just an acquaintance, people will listen. Whatever your problem is, suicide won’t solve it. But most of all, think of the ones you love. Think of your family. Think of your friends. Think about how they would feel if they lost you. Here’s another way to look at it. Think about the person you love the most, and think about how you would feel if you lost him or her.
