Hershey Wrongful Death Attorneys
A wrongful death is defined as a death resulting from a wrongful act of another person including negligence, assault/batter, vehicular manslaughter. A wrongful death is the basis of a lawsuit against the responsible party or parties.
The unexpected loss of a loved one can be life altering, our Hershey attorneys know that nothing can truly compensate for the loss of a loved one.
In Pennsylvania, wrongful death claims are only allowed to be filed by the personal representative of the loved one’s estate. This can be the executor named in the will or any other qualified person to administer the estate.
The statute of limitations in the state of Pennsylvania for filing a wrongful death claim is 2 years following the date of the deceased.
Along with the pain and suffering of losing a loved one comes the concern of medical bills, future lost income and funeral expenses. If someone has died due to the negligence of another individual, hospital, or company’s negligence/actions they can be held responsible for compensating damages the surviving family members could undergo due to the death of a loved one.
