Compassionate Representation After Losing A Loved One

The sudden death of a loved one as a result of a car accident, workplace accident or any other type of accident is shocking and unsettling. You may not know where to turn for help. Fortunately, a skilled and experienced lawyer can help you evaluate the situation and help you understand the legal options that may exist.

Wrongful death claims are full of emotion. At DiLoreto, Cosentino & Bolinger P.C., we make ourselves available to our clients when they have questions or simply need someone to talk to. Our attorneys serve clients in Chambersburg, Harrisburg and the surrounding Pennsylvania areas. With more than 30 years of legal experience, we shoulder the legal burden so that our clients can focus on family and other important things following the unexpected passing of a relative.

Our Chambersburg wrongful death attorneys understand that no amount of financial compensation can replace what you have lost. However, a successful legal outcome can at least provide you with the resources you need to continue making ends meet and to move into the next phase of your life.

Top-Quality Representation

Though there are many personal injury attorneys in Pennsylvania, we believe that our firm is home to some of the best and most accomplished practitioners in the state. In wrongful death cases, it is important that you be able to trust your attorney’s ability to achieve positive results. Two of our lawyers are recognized as Top 100 Trial Lawyers in the state, and attorneys at our firm have received an AV-Preeminent* rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating available. Families can rely on us to represent them effectively in their time of need.

Damages After A Fatal Accident

Accidents that result in fatal injuries, including car, truck and motorcycle accidents; slip-and-fall accidents; and accidents related to unsafe products have serious financial implications, in addition to the emotional effects. Wrongful death lawsuits can help compensate you for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral costs
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of inheritance and potential earnings
  • Loss of companionship and support
  • Psychological and mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering

In addition to wrongful death claims, our attorneys also represent clients in survival actions, where surviving family members may be able to recover damages for personal injuries incurred by the victim. Survival actions may be brought together with wrongful death claims.
