Philadelphia Wrongful Death Attorney
Losing a family member is devastating. A death is more traumatizing when it is caused by someone else’s mistake or action. The loss can cripple a family emotionally and financially especially if the deceased family member was the main breadwinner.
If you have lost a spouse, child, or parent due to the negligence in Pennsylvania, you have the right to file a wrongful death claim. These types of claims arise out of violent car wrecks, drunk driving incidents, workplace accidents at construction sites and factories, medical negligence, and dangerous faulty products.
Wrongful death damages may be awarded for funeral and burial expenses, loss of future income, pain and suffering, loss of consortium (loss of a loved one’s companionship or care), and punitive damages intended to punish the defendant for their reckless conduct.
