Wrongful death cases can occur due a wide range of causes. Any time a family loses a loved one as a result of the negligence of another person, party or company, a wrongful death case can be filed. The most common types of wrongful death cases are as follows:
- Automobile Accidents
- Trucking Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Construction Accidents
- Medical Malpractice
- Nursing Home Mistakes
- Birth Injuries
- Dangerous Pharmaceuticals
- Harmful or Defective Products
Pennsylvania rules provide that the claim must be brought by the personal representative of the decedent’s estate; or, if no claim is filed within six (6) months of the victim’s death, any potential heir to wrongful death proceeds may file the lawsuit on behalf of the estate.
