Fatal Car Accidents
Middletown PA Fatal Car Accident Attorneys
You never anticipated that you saw them smile, heard them laugh, or held their hand for the last time. Now, you may be faced with the sudden, catastrophic, and overwhelming loss of someone you love. A fatal car accident ushers a tidal wave of grief into your life, creating a permanent void that no amount of money can fill. However, if another party was responsible for your tragic loss, you are entitled to seek justice on behalf of your lost loved one. If your loved one’s life was abruptly cut short by another person’s negligence, you and those surviving family members may have grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Obtaining compensation may assist you with funeral and final medical expenses, as well as recouping lost income and providing a more secure financial future for your family.

Fatal Car Accidents in Bucks County and Northeast Philadelphia
According to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s most recent Pennsylvania Crash Facts and Statistics Report, 1,195 people died during traffic accidents on Pennsylvania roadways in 2014. This translates into 3 lives lost every day, or 1 death every 7 hours. Although these numbers are staggering, they take on an entirely new and earth-shattering significance when someone you love becomes the face of the statistic. Fundamentally, graphs and tables can do nothing to illustrate the anguish that comes with a life lost.
Although there is no monetary sum that can compensate for the value of a human life, the loss of a loved one can represent a catastrophic blow to you both personally and financially. With the significant costs of funeral expenses and final medical bills, a death can place a serious financial burden on you and your family. In addition, you may have relied on the income of your lost loved one to supplement or perhaps support your family. In the face of their death, your financial future becomes uncertain. Fortunately, a wrongful death claim provides a mechanism through which to pursue the financial compensation that you need to put your life back together. If someone else was responsible for causing an accident that led to your loved one’s death, you can hold these parties accountable.
Wrongful death lawsuits represent a significant threat to insurance companies, who will pursue all means necessary to avoid paying the hefty amounts associated with these cases. As such, it is essential to hire a team of attorneys who will utilize all of their knowledge and resources to bolster your case. For instance, investigators, accident reconstruction specialists, and forensic experts can provide a complete portrait of the accident, which we then use to create a compelling case on your behalf. Consulting with corroborating witnesses, reviewing police reports, retrieving weather and road conditions data, viewing surveillance footage–any and all of these steps can be critical to the success of your case. And at the end of the day, an aggressive trial strategy can spell the difference between loss and justice.
