By Your Side After A Wrongful Death

Even when you are prepared for your loved one’s passing, it can still be difficult to handle this loss. If another’s negligent or careless actions caused your loved one’s death, you are not given the opportunity to prepare for this devastating event. You may not know where to begin while you seek closure.

You do not have to face this tragic situation alone. I use the law to help grieving families find justice after they have suffered an immense loss. For nearly four decades, I have successfully advocated for personal injury victims and their families throughout western Pennsylvania. You can count on me 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. As an estate planning attorney, I am qualified to review your loved one’s estate plan and advise you of your options.

When you consult with me in Monroeville, I will listen to your story and tailor my recommendations according to your unique circumstances. I am intimately familiar with the legal process and the documentation required. I will guide you through this process, giving you time to focus on healing.

What Damages Do These Claims Cover?

As a seasoned trial lawyer and experienced negotiator, I use my skills to pursue maximum compensation for your wrongful death lawsuit. You may be entitled to receive a variety of damages, including:

  • 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, I have the insight you need to hold responsible parties accountable. When you work with me, you can rest assured that I will tirelessly pursue your best interests in court or negotiations.
