What is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

A wrongful death lawsuit enables the family of the deceased, or another party filing a claim (such as the estate of the deceased), to recover monetary losses – such as the loss of income – associated with the death of their loved one. Under the Pennsylvania Wrongful Death Act, you may be entitled to compensation if you have lost a spouse, parent, or child due to an act of negligence. The damages in a wrongful death case are meant to compensate for losses resulting from the death of a family member.

While nothing can undo the terrible loss your family has suffered, allow our firm to help your family obtain financial compensation to cover unexpected out-of-pocket expenses, including:

  • Medical bills prior to the death
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of income and benefits

Metzger Wickersham understands how difficult this time is for you and your family, which is why we are dedicated to providing you with compassionate support throughout the entire legal process. Our goal is to help ensure that your family receives everything you need to get past this experience. This means providing you with personalized attention, open communication, and unyielding commitment.
