After losing a loved one, your overwhelming grief may make it difficult to take action to protect your rights. Insurance companies will exploit this by trying to pressure you into settling for less than you deserve. Our attorneys help you understand and pursue your legal rights.
Georgelis Injury Law Firm, P.C. concentrates on recovering damages for Lancaster residents and visitors who have been injured or lost a loved one because of the negligence of a person or corporation. We know we cannot diminish your grief, but we do all we can to ease the financial burden on you and your family in a respectful, compassionate manner.
Chapter 2200 of the Pennsylvania Code governs who can file a wrongful death lawsuit. The personal representative of your loved one’s estate is responsible for filing the wrongful death action on behalf of the beneficiaries of the estate. If the personal representative has not filed a claim within six months of your loved one’s death, however, a family member can file the claim on behalf of all of the beneficiaries.
A wrongful death claim is based on the personal injury cause of action. Pennsylvania law allows family members to bring a wrongful death claim as though the deceased had filed a personal injury suit herself or himself. Pennsylvania law expressly allows a personal injury claim to survive a person’s death. To prevail in a wrongful death lawsuit, you must prove that the defendant was negligent and that this negligence was the cause of your loved one’s death.
