Tragically, employees are killed every year in workplace accidents. The wrongful death attorneys at The Levin Firm recover for the families of the victims of workplace accidents. If you have lost a loved one in a fatal workplace accident, the last thing you want to worry about is money. That is why you need a team of Philadelphia work compensation injury and wrongful death attorneys to do your work for you and ensure you and your family recovers the compensation you deserve. Hiring the right wrongful death lawyers is a serious and important decision.
Workers’ compensation benefits, which are normally paid directly to employees who are injured on the job, are also available to the families of fatal workplace accident victims. Additionally, you have the option of bringing a wrongful death action against any third parties responsible for the accident.
Under the Pennsylvania Wrongful Death Act, the victim’s spouse, minor children, and dependent adult children are entitled to receive compensation from the parties responsible for the fatal accident. Parents may also receive compensation for the wrongful death of a minor child, or an adult child upon whom the parents depended. Damages may be awarded for funeral and burial expenses, loss of future income, pain and suffering, loss of consortium (loss of a loved one’s companionship or care), and punitive damages intended to punish the defendant for the negligent behavior which caused death.
We know that no amount of money will ever replace or bring back your loved one. But it may help bring your family closure to know that justice has been served against those responsible for your loved one’s wrongful death, and give you the comfort of knowing your family will be provided for well into the future.
At The Levin Firm, we understand that both workers’ compensation and wrongful death cases require particular types of skills and knowledge, as well as ability to understand your rights and your loved one’s rights. We understand these issues, and work with our clients, their friends and family, as well as doctors, psychologists, long-term care planners, and others – to ensure that our clients receive the finest legal representation.
Workers’ compensation claims and wrongful death lawsuits are complex, and require attorneys who understand how to navigate the system, and who are willing to explain the status of your case to you every step of the way. At The Levin Firm, we investigate every claim so that we may aggressively and zealously represent our clients and obtain the best possible results.
