LOCAL. EXPERIENCED. RELENTLESS.
Losing a loved one is one of the most painful experiences a person can have in life, especially if the death did not need to happen. When someone else’s carelessness leads to the death of a loved one, you may be able to bring a claim against the responsible parties. The lawyers at Rosen Justice can help you navigate the complicated wrongful death process with compassion and professionalism.
Pennsylvania Wrongful Death Law
Pennsylvania law provides two ways to recover damages against those responsible. The first is a wrongful death lawsuit which compensates family members for the losses they suffer as a result of losing the deceased person. Damages can be recovered for:
- The loss of companionship and affection, and for a spouse, the loss of a sexual relationship;
- Loss of financial support and contribution to the family. This includes things like payments for household bills, medical care and food. It can also include things like child care, cooking and similar home making activities.
The second way to recover damages is a survival action lawsuit. A survival action seeks damages for things that the deceased person could have sued for if they were still alive. This includes things like:
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Medical bills
- Funeral expenses

How Long After a Death Can I Sue?
In Pennsylvania there is a two year statute of limitations for these types of claims, so it is imperative to speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
Who Can Bring a Wrongful Death and Survival Actions?
Any family member or beneficiary named in a will (if there is one) including non-family members can recover damages in a survival action lawsuit. However, only a spouse, children, or parents are eligible to recover financial compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.
