Death in any situation is a deeply saddening and life-changing event for family members and other loved ones. Even more harrowing are deaths that resulted from negligence, recklessness or the intentional acts of another person or company.
Regardless of whether the wrongful death is due to medical negligence, driving negligence or products liability, Pennsylvania has enacted laws to protect the rights of the deceased’s loved ones and forces those who caused the death to take responsibility for their negligent actions.
Pennsylvania law allows the beneficiaries of a deceased love one to recover not only the financial losses resulting from the death (loss of future earnings) but also the loss of guidance, comfort, tutelage and companionship he or she bestowed upon the family.
If you have lost a loved one as a result of the careless acts of others, know your rights. Contact a Kolsby Gordon lawyer today.
