The untimely death of a loved one can cause unbelievable grief to a family. When the death was caused by someone else’s negligence the family may feel a need for justice to be done. In this situation, Pennsylvania families can file a wrongful death lawsuit to hold the negligent party accountable. Our Pittsburgh-based law firm can help.
Our experienced lawyers are aware that this is a difficult time for surviving family members. Besides grief, they can also be experiencing anger and guilt. Our skilled yet compassionate wrongful death attorneys have successfully helped many Pennsylvanians to seek justice for their loved one.
Although no amount of money can bring back a lost loved one, money is the only remedy courts will allow in a civil wrongful death case. Moreover, surviving families can be plagued by the financial repercussions of the death. This is particularly true for a family whose loved one significantly contributed to the family’s income. In addition to financial loss, the law provides that families can also be compensated for emotional damages such as loss of companionship, parental guidance and loss of society. Medical and funeral expenses can also be recovered.
Although we understand that money does not erase the pain of a loved one’s death, we can help alleviate the financial problems that are an unfair consequence of the death. Our Pittsburgh-based law firm builds strong wrongful death cases by compiling the available evidence, witness testimony and other important details to make a compelling presentation to the jury. We leave no stone unturned for families when we accept a case.
