If someone’s negligent or careless actions caused your loved one’s death, it is hard to know where to begin. Fortunately, you do not have to face this tragedy alone.
At our firm, we know we cannot do anything to replace your loved one or truly make up for what you have lost. What we can do is use the legal system to recover financial compensation for your loss. Our attorneys have decades of experience advocating for the loved ones left behind by fatal accidents in western Pennsylvania. You can count on them to represent you with skill and compassion from day one until the resolution of your case.
Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim?
In Pennsylvania, only certain individuals can file wrongful death lawsuits. If your loved one created an estate plan, the individual chosen as the estate’s personal representative may take legal action. If your loved one died without an estate or will, you may volunteer to serve as the estate’s personal representative.
We will listen to your story and tailor our recommendations according to your unique circumstances. We are intimately familiar with the legal process and the documentation required. Our team will guide you through this process, giving you time to focus on healing.
What Damages Does A Wrongful Death Claim Cover?
A wrongful death verdict or settlement can provide compensation for damages such as:
- Expenses for your loved one’s funeral and burial
- Medical or hospital expenses associated with injuries that led to your loved one’s death
- Lost wages and loss of future income
- Noneconomic damages, including emotional distress and loss of companionship
Whether you are taking action against an individual, a business or an insurance company, we have the insight you need to hold responsible parties accountable. We will tirelessly pursue your best interests through every aspect of your case.
