The untimely death of a loved one, whether it is a parent, spouse, child or sibling, is always a devastating situation that permanently changes a family. The grief can be overwhelming. What makes the loss more difficult is the knowledge that it was caused by someone else’s negligence, which means that the fatal accident could have been avoided. Our Pittsburgh-based law firm completely understands the plight families are going through and we are willing to help to make sure they are not further exploited during their time of loss.
