What is an Erie, PA Wrongful Death Claim?

When a person loses their life due to the negligent or careless actions of another, the surviving family members of the deceased have a right to seek justice in a wrongful death claim. In some wrongful death cases, the negligent party may be held liable in both criminal and civil court cases, but family members will not receive compensation for their losses unless they pursue a wrongful death claim.

Wrongful death claims can be filed for many reasons. Some of the most common are

  • Car accidents: Car accidents have taken the lives of 36,000 people in the last reporting year
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents: Of all traffic deaths, 2% were bicyclists and 17% were pedestrians
  • Boating accidents: Boating accidents have led to a fatality rate of 5.2 deaths per 100,000 boats, 79% of which were from drowning, often due to inexperienced operators impaired by alcohol
  • Workplace accidents: A little more than 5,000 workers lost their lives in workplace accidents in the last reporting year
