Millions Won for Grieving Families in Pennsylvania Since 1922
By its very definition, a "wrongful death" should never occur.
An accident or negligent act results in a wrongful death when someone dies under preventable and predictable circumstances. For example, when a driver hits a pedestrian because he or she was looking down at a phone, that's a wrongful death. When a worker falls from a ledge because the employer didn't install proper safety equipment, that's a wrongful death.
Regardless of how unlikely or uncommon an accident might be, it's "wrongful" when someone fails in their duty to make others safe.
That's why our York wrongful death attorneys hold individuals and businesses accountable when it happens—grieving families deserve justice. Without accountability, no one would ever make their workplaces or behavior safer. When people are punished for causing harm, then it gives meaning to the victim's life. In our experience, securing justice helps family members get closure. It gives us peace to know that our loved ones' death was answered for—which is why filing lawsuits for wrongful death is important.
If your loved one was killed because someone else was careless or negligent, call Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLC. One call could answer your questions and give you the support you need right now.
Why File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
Injury law has a simple purpose: help people get the money they need to recover from loss. Whenever people lose a loved one, they suffer from far more than just "grief." Wrongful death robs families of spousal companionship, parental guidance, and emotional stability. In many cases, the loss of income, medical care prior to death, and funeral expenses can set people back by thousands of dollars.
Wrongful death claims can help grieving family members recover all this and more. Because a person's life can't be measured in financial value, the courts allow wrongful death claimant to sue for non-economic damages, like pain and suffering or punitive damages. These types of damages exist solely to force companies to reckon with the pain they caused—while supporting the families who are left behind.
