Pennsylvania Wrongful Death Attorneys
Mourning a loved one is a complicated and lengthy process. But what happens when you suspect the loved one shouldn’t have died at all and that their death was due to the action or lack of responsible action of another person? When needless death occurs due to negligence of another party, Philly wrongful death lawsuits can be filed. In these lawsuits, the decedent’s heirs sue the negligent party or parties for damages related to the loss of life and their own pain and suffering.
While the causes of wrongful death in Pennsylvania (and all other states) are extremely varied, the aspects of wrongful death lawsuits tend to remain the same. The decedent’s heirs must decide who is to be sued and then prove that they had a duty of care to the decedent and that their lack of care caused or contributed to the decedent’s wrongful death. With the help of a wrongful death attorney, the family can sue the negligent person in court and receive monetary compensation for the wages the decedent would have earned had he or she lived, the loss of support to the family, even money related to pain and suffering and loss of consort.
The amount that can be claimed and the heirs who are allowed to file a Pennsylvania wrongful death lawsuit can vary widely depending on jurisdiction. In addition, statutes of limitation may come into play that limit the time a family has to file a wrongful death lawsuit. For these reasons and due to the complexity of these cases, it is recommended that families who think their family member’s death was wrongful first contact a wrongful death attorney for a case assessment. If the case is valid, the attorney can help investigate the claim, gather evidence, represent them in court, and collect the compensation they deserve.
