Every year in the United States there are thousands of unintentional deaths that result from accidents ranging from medical errors to product manufacturing defects. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that in 2010, there were 120,859 unintentional injury deaths. Many of these deaths were the results of food poisoning, car accidents, slips and falls, and more. In some cases, the action or negligence of another person or entity was responsible for the death.

A wrongful death attorney can help Bucks County families pursue fair compensation that fully accounts for their damages.

I must say, nothing but the most wonderful people working at Cordisco! Kevin and Joann were always available for anything I needed. They helped to settle my case fast and they were there every step of the way. I would recommend them to anyone.

Who can recover damages in a wrongful death lawsuit in Bucks County?

Only an immediate family member or spouse of the deceased person can recover benefits from a wrongful death lawsuit. A personal representative of the deceased – which may or may not be a family member – can file the claim for the benefit of the beneficiaries, which includes a spouse, children, or parents. If you believe that you are entitled to recover damages in a claim for wrongful death, a lawyer in Bucks County can help you review your eligibility.

The wrongful death suit recovers compensation for the beneficiaries’ damages, like lost earnings of the deceased, loss of consortium, loss of guidance, loss of services and more. A survival action, meanwhile, recovers compensation for the estate for damages the deceased suffered prior to death, such as medical bills or pain and suffering. These damages go to the estate and are distributed to the beneficiaries by the decedent’s will or Pennsylvania’s intestate laws.
