Wrongful Death Plaintiffs & Damages

Pennsylvania law dictates that the parent, child, or spouse of a deceased loved one can file a wrongful death suit (other parties, like siblings, unfortunately, cannot). Potentially, these clients can then pursue compensation for a number of different damages.

Damages in a wrongful death claim can include:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Medical costs (for care prior the deceased's death)
  • Administrative costs
  • Future services that the deceased would reasonably have provided
  • Grief and emotional distress damages

While not every one of these damages will apply to every case, many of them may apply to yours. Our team can craft a comprehensive wrongful death claim that includes an accurate scope of what you deserve following your tragedy. Our legal advocates are ready to ensure that the gravity of your loss is compellingly put forth both in and outside the courtroom.
