In Pennsylvania, your family may be entitled to file a wrongful death claim even if the party or parties who caused your loved one’s death are not charged or convicted of a crime.

Seeking Financial Compensation for Your Loved One’s Death

No amount of money can bring your loved one back after they have passed away due to someone else’s careless or reckless actions. But seeking compensation can help relieve the financial burden of your loved one’s death and provide your family with some measure of justice. In a wrongful death case, your family may be entitled to obtain financial recovery for:

  • Loss of your loved one’s income and financial contributions to the family and household
  • Loss of your loved one’s future earnings or the future growth of their assets and estate
  • Loss of the value of your loved one’s services to the household, including childcare, cooking, cleaning, or home maintenance
  • Loss of your loved one’s care, affection, society, comfort, and guidance

In addition, your loved one’s estate may be entitled to recover expenses and losses that were incurred by the estate or by your loved one prior to their death, including:

  • Loss of income from the time between your loved one’s final injury/illness and their death
  • Medical expenses incurred to treat your loved one’s fatal injury or illness
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Estate administration expenses

Philadelphia Wrongful Death Attorneys Answer Frequently Asked Questions About Wrongful Death in Philadelphia, PA

What is the statute of limitations on wrongful death claims?

The statute of limitations on wrongful death claims in Pennsylvania gives you two years from your loved one’s death to file a lawsuit against those at fault for your loved one’s passing or liable for your family’s losses. If you file an untimely lawsuit, your case may end up being dismissed and your family may lose the opportunity to pursue compensation and justice.

Who can file a wrongful death claim?

Under Pennsylvania law, a wrongful death claim is normally filed by the personal representative of a deceased person’s estate. However, if the personal representative does not file the claim within six months of the decedent’s passing, then the claim may be filed by any of the decedent’s beneficiaries on behalf of all eligible beneficiaries.

Who can recover compensation from a wrongful death lawsuit?

Normally, compensation recovered in a wrongful death claim is intended to compensate a deceased individual’s surviving spouse, children, and/or parents for the losses they have suffered due to their family member’s death. In addition, the personal representative of the decedent’s estate can also recover compensation for the estate’s expenses.
