Seeking wrongful death suit after criminal trial is advisable

| Feb 19, 2016 | Wrongful Death |

Some of people’s worst fears involve the sudden loss of a loved one. Sadly, for some Pittsburgh residents, this fear becomes a reality. Sometimes an untimely death results in a criminal trial, such as certain cases involving a car accident.

Unlike criminal trials, wrongful death suits are civil cases involving financial compensation. Wrongful death cases can also hold the appropriate party responsible for an accident involving negligence. If a guilty verdict is reached in a criminal trial, it often bodes well for a wrongful death suit. This is because wrongful death suits have a lower threshold of proof than criminal trials.

When an untimely death of a spouse, parent or child happens, it is a devastating event that will change a family forever. There are no words that can possibly express the grief and loss that a family goes through at this time. At Savinis, Damico & Kane, we understand and sympathize with what people in this situation are going through, and we want to do everything in our power to ensure a favorable legal resolution.

Wrongful death claims can cover expenses related to medical and funeral bills, lost wages and other compensable damages related to a loved one’s death in a fatal accident.

While no amount of money will bring back a loved one, money can help grieving family members to move forward with their own lives. Financial security can bring a level of support that can make life more manageable. Emotions run high in these situations, but family members who have lost a loved one in a fatal accident should consider all of their available legal options.
