Losing a loved one in an accident is an unspeakable tragedy. Sadly, fatal accidents are far more common than any of us would like to believe. From vehicle collisions to medical mistakes, a momentary lapse in judgment can become deadly. As the surviving relative of the deceased, it is understandable that you feel devastated, shocked, even outraged at this loss. 

If you have lost family member due to someone else’s negligence, you may have a claim for wrongful death. The individual or company responsible for your loved one’s death needs to be held accountable, and Pennsylvania law entitles surviving family members to seek just compensation. While no amount of money can replace what you have lost, a wrongful death suit can hold the negligent party accountable for their actions and help provide future security for you and your family.

Our wrongful death lawyers have fought for families in cases involving all types of fatal accidents, and we have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients’ losses. We understand your situation, and we want you to know that we are here to help in any way we can.

Pennsylvania Wrongful Death FAQs

Q: How long do I have to file a wrongful death claim in Pennsylvania?

In Pennsylvania, in the vast majority of cases, the statute of limitations for wrongful death claims is two years from the date of death. If your loved one recently passed away, speaking with an attorney now will help you secure just compensation as quickly as possible. If you are concerned that the statute of limitations may have expired, you should speak with an attorney to find out if you still have grounds to file a claim.

Q: What types of losses can I recover through a claim for wrongful death?

If you lost a spouse, parent, child, or grandchild as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical bills and funeral costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost earnings and benefits
  • Loss of care and companionship
  • Loss of support, services, and security

In some cases, punitive damages will also be available.

Q: The insurance company has already offered a settlement. Should I accept?

No, not without first speaking with an experienced attorney. Unfortunately, the insurance company may be trying to take advantage of your sensitive situation. In most cases, when an insurance company offers a quick settlement, the offer is for far less than the amount that is actually owed. Our attorneys can help you understand the full value of your claim so that you can make an informed decision.

Chris Munley represented my dad at a very difficult time with compassion yet in the court room he was the fighter we needed. Chris helped my family during a time of incredible hardship when my dad was hit head on by 2 teenage girls. He took the time to answer all of our questions at any given time when we needed him. He treated my entire family with respect and helped us to get what we deserved. I would recommend Chris Munley to anyone in need of a reliable, determined, and trustworthy attorney.

About 5 months ago, I had injured my back after lifting a heavy box at work. My employer refused to submit my claim even though the doctor had said the injury was caused by the action. I turned to Caroline Munley for help and I’m glad that I did. She walked me through filing my claim and helped me get the money to pay for my medical bills. I don’t know where I would be without her. Thank you, Ms. Munley! Lisa, a Workers’ Compensation Client
