There are no words to describe the pain and grief a family experiences after losing a loved one. Money cannot adequately compensate for a family's loss. Unfortunately, under Pennsylvania law, as well as in legislatures across the country, compensation is the only acceptable remedy after a fatal accident. Many law firms are aware of this, of course, and seek any compensation when serving their clients. However, our Pittsburgh-based law firm treats the situation with the sensitivity it rightfully deserves.
Families go through a healing process after losing a loved one. Regrettably, this process can be interrupted because of legislation. This is where are law firm can make a difference. We handle all of the details and merits of the case so that a family can go through the healing process undisturbed.
We also seek the appropriate compensation for the family. Under state law, in a wrongful death lawsuit, the victim's possible earnings, loss of companionship, and pain and suffering can be sought in the form of a monetary award. Medical expenses and funeral costs can be paid as well. Punitive damages can also be awarded to deter other people from committing a similar negligent act.
Our law firm will use its experience and outstanding track record to handle wrongful death cases, whether from an auto accident, work-related accidents, medical malpractice or nursing home abuse, to make sure that a negligent person or company is held legally accountable. Beyond the compensation, this is our contribution to the client's cause - helping the client to obtain a measure of justice.
Our Pittsburgh law firm is open to consultations. The sooner the evidence is examined, the sooner we can build a case. We will be more than willing to help you every step of the way.
