Frequently Asked Questions about Wrongful Death Cases
Q: What constitutes “wrongful death”?
A: A wrongful death is a death that is caused by negligence on the part of another person or company. Negligence includes behavior that is careless, reckless, or fails to act with reasonable care. Some common causes of wrongful death include car accidents, truck accidents, workplace accidents, a faulty or defective product, and medical malpractice. If negligence results in wrongful death, the surviving family members of the deceased may pursue legal action against the party at fault.
Q: What is the statute of limitations in a wrongful death lawsuit?
A: In Pennsylvania, the statute of limitations for a wrongful death case is two years from the date of death.
Q: Should I accept a settlement from the insurance company?
A: Never accept a settlement offer from an insurance company before consulting with an experienced wrongful death lawyer, like those of us at Munley Law. Unfortunately, the settlement offered by an insurance company is usually a fraction of what you would receive with the help of a lawyer.
Q: What kinds of damages can recover in a wrongful death lawsuit?
A: Depending on your case, you may be entitled to damages covering funeral and burial costs, medical costs, loss of income, lost pension, loss of services and support such as home management and childrearing, and your family’s pain and suffering.
Q: How much will it cost to hire a wrongful death lawyer?
A: At Munley Law, we only charge on a contingent-fee basis. This means that we only collect a fee if we win your case and obtain damages for you. And, we do not charge anything for our initial consultation, so it will not cost you anything to meet with us to discuss your potential case.
