Wrongful Death Lawyers in Philadelphia

Pennsylvania – New Jersey

Our caring and compassionate Pennsylvania Wrongful Death Lawyers in Philadelphia, PA and Marlton, NJ are always on your side! If you feel that a loved one has lost their life due to the negligence of others, then finding the right wrongful death lawyer is extremely important.

Whereas most personal injury cases in Philadelphia and New Jersey are brought directly by the person who was injured due to the negligence of another, wrongful death cases are unique in that they are brought by the immediate family members or loved ones of the deceased. Under Pennsylvania law, specifically, the Pennsylvania Survival Act, the estate of the deceased may recover as damages amounts that the deceased individual would have earned if he or she had survived. This includes medical expenses, property damage, expenses associated with administering the estate, medical bills, funeral expenses, any pain and suffering the deceased individual endured before the wrongful death, as well as punitive damages under extreme circumstances. In addition, the deceased individual’s spouse, his or her children, and his or her parents may recover for their own pain and suffering.
