Don’t Suffer Alone After Loss

When somebody you love dies because of negligence, whether on the part of an employer, a hospital or another party, you as a survivor are left emotionally and financially devastated. You may not know how to move on alone.

Moving On With Our Help

Luckily, you don’t have to. O'Donnell, Weiss & Mattei, P.C., is a firm with a unique focus on personal injury suits, including wrongful death.

“Wrongful death” means death caused by negligence or misconduct of another person or party, and it is used to describe the types of lawsuits brought by the survivors against the person or company that caused the death. The negligence can be accidental or intentional. It can be the act of a single person or a corporation.

Pennsylvania law provides for the compensation of any survivors when a wrongful death occurs. Survivors (or “beneficiaries”) include the spouse and minor children of a deceased adult. In the case of a deceased minor, it is the parents of the minor deceased child who are considered survivors.

Depending on the details of the case, damages awarded could include:

  • Death expenses
  • Loss of the victim’s income and other benefits
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship
