Death

If your loved one has passed due to a motor vehicle wreck, nursing home abuse or neglect, medical malpractice, or some other preventable negligence, we are here to help by fighting in and out of the courtroom for what you deserve.

Pennsylvania permits recovery for both wrongful death and survival to protect the rights of the deceased individual and the rights of that loved one's family to recover damages for a death caused by the wrongful act or negligence of another individual. The laws about regarding suit after a person's death are complex ones and must be followed promptly to permit recovery.
