WRONGFUL DEATH ATTORNEY SERVICES

PROUDLY SERVING PITTSBURGH HARRISBURG SCRANTON & ALL SURROUNDING AREAS

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 wrongful death may not even be remorseful.

Our Pennsylvania wrongful death attorneys will get you the answers to these questions and the justice you deserve from the person who has injured your loved one. 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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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

$2.9 million to the father of a 16-year-old girl who committed suicide in 2015 while she resided at the Bethany Children’s Home. A jury found Bethany Children’s Home negligent for not properly supervising the young woman, resulting in her leaving the campus unsupervised – despite the law requiring her to be supervised off the grounds while under their care.

$6.5 million settlement to the family of man killed by rock crusher after falling into it. Fellow employees at B.S. Quarries Inc. testified that they were instructed to climb over the mouth of the crusher – a clear safety violation – and this caused the man’s death. The employee further stated that a meeting was held instructing employees to say they did not see how Sherwood fell into the machine.

$3.1 million to a family 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.

No one likes a bully. Yet, after a traumatic event in your life, that is exactly what the insurance company can seem like. Every day I fight zealously for my clients to get them the compensation they are entitled to, counsel them during a difficult period in their life, and protect my clients from those same bullies.

All attorneys can make promises, what separates our firm from the rest is the fact that we never stop working until you are completely satisfied and made whole again after a traumatic injury that was caused by someone else. Once I begin working on your case, the matter becomes personal to me. I always say, ‘I lose sleep so you don’t have to.

I’ve personally witnessed, through an experience of my father’s, how someone else’s negligent acts can alter a person’s life. It is fulfilling to be a member of the Pisanchyn law firm where I can help people like my dad who have been injured through the negligence of others.

Praise for our PA Injury Law Firm

I rate the Pisanchyn law firm five stars if I had a way to rate them 100 stars I would they were so kind so helpful and so caring in a very scary time of my life. I don’t know what I would’ve done without Mr. Pisanchyn and his staff. No matter what I needed they were there morning, noon, or night Mr.Pisanchyn was even kind enough to give me his own personal cell phone number in case I ever needed him day or night. This is the second time I’ve used his law firm and I will use him 100 more Times. I fully recommend his law firm to anyone and everyone in need of a good defense lawyer. I’ve already recommended him at least a dozen times and everyone I told to use his law firm has been more than satisfied. Some of them even called me and said thank you for recommending him. Thank you so much mike for everything you did for me and my family.

– JESSICA

Nine years ago I was in a nasty car accident and didn’t know where to turn, with a lot of luck I ended up calling Mike to represent me. It was the best thing I ever did. He never treated me like a client, I made a friend. The friendship extended to the entire office. He did exactly what he said he would. Then 3 years ago my husband got hurt at work and we never thought twice on who to call. By this time Mike had taken on other partners in the firm. Keith, who handled the workers comp case and Lee who took care of the SSI. I don’t know what others are talking about it taking so much time or so much hastle~~~both ended up settling much sooner than we ever expected. The entire firm works together, from the attorneys to the entire staff. I really think that is part of what makes this law firm the best ever.

They helped me tremendously when I was going through Worker’s Compensation and a Settlement. There was no way I could have gone through it myself. Everyone was patient and professional with me and believe, I’m sure that was not easy. Everything was completely settled almost 13 months ago and I’m back on my feet and working once again. I absolutely recommend Pisanchyn Law Firm to anyone that needs help with a work injury or anything work related.

– BOB

People like you make it easy to be thankful. Thanks again!

– MARK

I would just like to thank everyone that helped settle my Workers’ Comp case, you were all so helpful. It meant a lot to me and helped me get my life back on track.

I can’t tell you how happy I am of the results from your office. I got wonderful, professional and extremely fast service for the situations I had. I will be using your office again if need be and telling everyone I know how hard it is to get results without your help.

– LUANN

Personal Injury News

Exceptions are not Guarantees

Insurance companies follow strict legal definitions of what serious injury really is, and even though there is a serious injury exception for limited tort, you still may not get compensation for your pain and suffering.

There Are Exceptions to Limited Tort, but Don’t Rely on These Alone for Protection

Along with serious injury, there are other exceptions to limited tort but relying on these exceptions alone to be compensated for your pain and suffering, in most cases, will not help you.

The Tort Coverage You Choose Could Affect Your Family, Too

Whatever option you choose, full tort or limited tort, it could affect your family, too.

Are You Covered?

Too often people come to us thinking they have “full coverage” on their insurance policies only to find out too late that they have the basic coverage required by law, or not enough coverage to pay for the hospital bills and damages.
