Wrongful Death

Attorney for Families Who Have Lost Loved Ones

Seeking Compensation for Negligent Accidents

The sudden death of a loved one imposes real financial burdens on families, as well as emotional suffering. Under Pennsylvania wrongful death law, families are entitled to compensation for certain damages when a family member dies due to negligent circumstances including, but not limited to:

  • Medical malpractice (failure to diagnose cancer, surgical errors, birth injuries, etc.)
  • Car/auto accidents
  • Trucking accidents
  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Defective products

You may be entitled to compensation not only for the lost income of the deceased person, funeral expenses and other financial costs, but also the pain and suffering of the family at the sudden loss of a close relative.

Standing Up for Justice for Families

Obviously nothing can bring your loved one back to you, but bringing a wrongful death claim can uncover answers, hold negligent people and organizations accountable, and possibly prevent similar tragedies from happening to other families. It can also help you financially so you can devote your attention to coping with your loss.

Don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss your rights under the laws governing wrongful death.
