Wrongful Death

The Pennsylvania wrongful death statute is a legal provision that allows the beneficiaries of a deceased person to seek compensation if the death resulted from another party's wrongful act, neglect, or negligence. In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim is two years from the date of the deceased's death. This statute is crucial for providing financial relief to the dependents of the deceased, covering expenses ranging from funeral costs to lost wages. Wrongful death claims can arise from various incidents, including medical malpractice, car accidents, workplace accidents, and criminal acts. It's important for those affected to consult with a knowledgeable attorney to navigate this complex legal process and ensure that their rights are protected.

The loss of a loved one severely impacts the entire family, but it is even more devastating when the death could have been prevented if not for the negligent or wrongful intentional behavior of a person or a corporation. A wrongful death lawsuit enables the family members of the deceased loved one to seek maximum monetary damages for their loss along with providing additional funding to pay for all of the expenses associated with the loss of the loved one who has passed away.
