The Philadelphia, PA wrongful death attorneys at The Levin Firm understand that wrongful death can occur simply by general negligence. Our PA personal injury lawyers know there is nothing quite like the suffering a family experiences when they have lost a loved one due to wrongful death because of the negligent conduct of another. Workplace accidents, motor vehicle collisions, medical malpractice and many other unfortunate incidents can lead to the wrongful and untimely death of an individual.
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.
