Wrongful Death Lawyer, York PA
There is nothing more painful than facing the reality of a loved one who has succumbed to an accident of some kind, totally unexpectedly. A wrongful death can stem from car or truck accidents, work-site calamities, medical malpractice, defective products, pedestrian mishaps, nursing home negligence, dog attacks, or other cases where a wrongful act or negligence comes into question.
At the Dale E. Anstine Law Office, our wrongful-death lawyer team has more than 4 decades of experience regarding this painful, and emotionally consuming family circumstance. We unfortunately deal with wrongful-death cases on a regular basis. However, our York, PA clients quickly come to appreciate the empathy, compassion, and exceptional insight our legal team offers as we help families reach much-needed closure.
As a wrongful-death lawyer team, another part of our mission is to fight – aggressively if necessary – against insurance providers who might attempt to diminish or deny damages for our clients. Damages can include medical and funeral expenses related to the decedent, loss of the decedent’s income, property damages, pain and suffering which may include the loss of affection and guidance, and much more.
If someone, intentionally or unintentionally, caused the death of your loved one, it is vitally important to have a wrongful-death lawyer team on your side. Our legal professionals will calculate your losses – monetarily, emotionally, and mentally – from the time of your family member’s death until the end of what, expectedly, would have been his or her lifespan had the fatal incident not occurred.
In the state of Pennsylvania, wrongful death is defined by the death of an individual caused by the wrongful act or neglect, or unlawful violence or negligence of another.
Wrongful-Death Situations are Complex
In the state of Pennsylvania, a member of the immediate family may file a wrongful-death claim. This differs, slightly, from what is known as a survival action. Any beneficiary listed in the decedent’s will, including non-relatives, is legally entitled to recoveries under a survival action. With a wrongful-death claim, only parents, children, or a spouse can receive compensation.
The complexities related to these types of situations should be handled by a seasoned and astute legal team. At the law office of Dale E. Anstine, we help York, PA families navigate their journeys towards not only closure, but the highest monetary compensations allowed by law.
