Wrongful Death Attorneys
When a loved one dies unexpectedly it is the most difficult time imaginable. This difficult time is magnified especially when another person has caused the death of the loved one due to a fatal accident or injury. Most of the time, there are questions that aren’t answered. Making the difficult time even worse, more often than not, the person who caused the death may not even be remorseful.

We will make sure that the individual or company will not be able to do this to another person. They will pay for the pain they have caused both you and your loved ones.
How can a Wrongful Death Attorney Help
When a person dies as a result of someone else’s negligence there are at least 2 causes of action that can be filed. The first is a wrongful death suit and the other is a survival action.
- A wrongful death suit is filed against the group or corporation accountable for causing injury to another person. The primary goal of the tort is to provide relief to the plaintiff and deter the defendant from inflicting further harm to others.
- The Pennsylvania Survival Act allows the deceased’s estate to recover any damages the deceased would have provided to their family had he or she lived, including earnings; medical and funeral expenses; estate administration expenses; survivor’s emotional pain and suffering, and punitive damages.
Record of Success
Just recently we had a client come to us whose loved one passed away as a result of a group home’s “Outrageous Conduct.” The special needs woman was a passenger in Hope Enterprise’s van when she suffered a liver laceration in a collision. She was not taken to the hospital until the next day for a previously scheduled appointment. Even as our client’s health deteriorated, Hope Enterprise’s staff failed to alert medical providers of the cause of her injuries, prolonging her pain and suffering for three more days until she sadly passed away.
We took this matter to trial and a jury awarded over $3.1 million to the estate of our client, showing that the community will not stand for negligent acts resulting in the loss of a life.
