Legal options after the wrongful death of a loved one

The unexpected death of a loved one can leave a family reeling from the emotional strain and financial costs that often follow. When the actions of another party, either directly or indirectly, contribute to the circumstances that led to a fatal accident, Pennsylvania family members may have certain legal options available to them. A wrongful death claim can help a family obtain the financial support needed during a difficult time. 

If you are facing medical expenses, funeral costs and the financial impact of a deceased family member’s lost income, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Families can face a variety of financial difficulties for months and years after a loved one passes, some never realizing that there are legal options by which they can recover some or all of their losses. Additionally, Pennsylvania families could also be compensated for their emotional pain and suffering.

A wrongful death accident can occur for many reasons. In some situations, it can seem like an impossible task to hold the liable parties accountable for their role in the death of your loved one, but a knowledgeable legal ally knows how to navigate complex claims. If you are unsure of how to proceed on behalf of your family, you have the right to seek a legal opinion regarding your case.

If you have recently lost a loved one, you should not have to walk through the legal process on your own. Explore all of your legal options in order to make decisions that protect the long-term interests of your family. The wrongful death of a loved one can have negative implications for years, but the attorneys at DiLoreto, Cosentino & Bolinger P.C. can strive to protect you from additional financial struggles.
