You may know the term “wrongful death” but not exactly what it means. A wrongful death is one that results from another party’s negligence or wrongful actions.
For example, if an automaker manufactures a vehicle with a malfunctioning part, and that part causes someone to crash and ultimately pass away, the family could bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the automaker.
The suit would attempt to recover financial losses associated with the death, such as the costs of providing a proper burial and settling the person’s will. Surviving family members may even be able to recover compensation for pain and suffering resulting from the death.
In Pennsylvania, wrongful deaths are similar to other types of personal injuries in that you have two years to file a lawsuit to recover compensation. The main difference to keep in mind is that the two-year period begins when your loved one passes away, not when the initial injury occurred.
As we always tell our personal injury clients at Mecadon Law, you stand the best chance of presenting a strong case for compensation if you retain a lawyer as soon as possible following the death.
