Time Is Critical In These Cases

In Pennsylvania, you only have so much time after losing a loved one to file a wrongful death suit. We are familiar with the time limits and can help you understand your options. We know what the other side will do to try to limit their own liability, and we know how to fight back.

A wrongful death action is brought on behalf of the family, to recover damages for:

  • Medical bills
  • Funeral costs
  • Loss of the person’s future income
  • Loss of health insurance and other benefits
  • Loss of the person’s household contributions
  • Loss of their love, affection and companionship
  • Loss of consortium (marital relations)

A separate survival action may be brought on behalf of the deceased, to recover damages for pain and suffering and mental anguish the person endured before they succumbed to the fatal injuries.
