According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, there are more than 8 million licensed drivers in the state of Pennsylvania, more than 7.6 million in Ohio, and more than 1.2 million in West Virginia. With close to 17 million drivers in these three states alone, it is easy to see how more than 32,000 people die each year in car accidents.

In Pennsylvania there are two civil claims that are frequently brought against a defendant who was at fault for the death of a person: wrongful death claim and survivor action. Wrongful death claims are made in an effort to compensate family members of the deceased for damages they suffered due to losing their loved one such as loss of emotional and financial support. Survivor actions are intended to recover for injuries sustained by the deceased between the time that the accident occurred and the time that he or she died such as pain and suffering and medical bills.
Our attorneys have been securing financial recoveries for car accident victims for a combined total of over 170 years. Although many of our settlements are so large that major insurance companies have prevented us from sharing the settlement amounts, we are still able to share some of our settlement amounts. See below for some of our case settlements and verdict amounts:
$3.3M – We secured a $3.3M recovery for family members of a man who was killed in a car accident when equipment fell off of a passing trailer and struck the victim’s motor vehicle.
$1.5M – Recovered for a man killed in a motor vehicle that was struck by a bus.
$1.3M – Recovered for a woman who was killed in an accident with a tractor-trailer.
$550,000 – Recovered for a motor vehicle passenger who was injured when the intoxicated driver crashed the motor vehicle they were riding in.
$450,000 – Recovered for a person injured in an SUV rollover accident.
$420,000 – We recovered the maximum insurance policy limits in a case where a woman was killed in a car accident.
