Wrongful Death: Helping Your Family Cope
No one wants to think about money after a wrongful death, but it is often an unfortunate consequence of losing a loved one. The damages you may recover in a wrongful death suit may include medical bills and funeral expenses, the loss of future earnings and benefits of the deceased, and the loss of companionship and affection of your loved one.
You may also receive compensation for the mental and physical pain and suffering of your loved one from the injury that resulted in death. Punitive damages may be awarded if the death was caused by criminal negligence.
At Pribanic & Pribanic, we treat you with compassion as we hold the negligent party accountable for your family’s losses. With our help, you can determine how much compensation your family will need in the future.

Pennsylvania law allows a spouse, children or parents to be beneficiaries in wrongful death suits. This can be a complex matter, and there is a two-year statute of limitations to file a wrongful death suit, so it is a good idea to discuss your case with an attorney as soon as possible. The sooner we collect evidence, the stronger your case will be.
