What Is A Wrongful Death And Survival Claim?
Wrongful death claims are civil actions brought against parties whose negligent or wrongful acts cause the death of close family members. These types of claims arise in a variety of ways, including auto accidents, defective and unsafe products, or falls. In Pennsylvania, legal action for a wrongful death and survival case belongs to the decedent’s immediate family members, usually a surviving spouse, children or sometimes parents. Wrongful death lawsuits involve the circumstance where the victim was killed by the negligent, reckless or intentional acts of the defendant.
