Navigating a wrongful death claim after the loss of a loved one

The loss of a loved one is a tragic and often very emotional event. Our firm understands that Pennsylvania residents can be greatly affected by the death of a family member due to the negligence of another. A fatal accident does not only take the life of the victim suddenly, but it also leaves their loved ones with a difficult aftermath. It is important that they understand how to address any issues arising from the fatal incident.

A wrongful death claim is a legal action that could help compensate the loved ones of the deceased. While no monetary award could every fully remedy their loss, the cause of action does not only provide compensation to family members but it could also serve as a punishment for the negligent or careless party.

While the claim could help make the negligent party accountable for their action, it is also important to understand whether there are any pending investigation or charges. Depending on the situation, criminal charges might be filed against the negligent party. In the case of a fatal automobile crash, the driver could face criminal charges. The evidence in the matter could also be used in the civil action. Furthermore, if there is a conviction, that information could be used in the civil action to prove liability.

Because a fatal accident is often a very emotional and life-altering event, loved ones might find it difficult to cope with their loss. This could make it challenging to fully understand what steps to take in the situation. Our firm's wrongful death claim overview could help explain the legal remedies available. This will also ensure their rights and interests are protected.
