Northeastern Pennsylvania Area Wrongful Death Attorneys
Saying goodbye to a loved one is perhaps the hardest thing anyone can face. True compassion and a network of support can help the grieving parties move forward. In cases of wrongful death, families need a team they can trust to navigate them through the legal details, while they focus on healing. At O’Donnell Law Offices, we have the experience necessary to provide that support.
The loss of a loved one can result in severe financial responsibility. Through a wrongful death claim, O’Donnell Law Offices helps families recover damages for pain and suffering, as well as lost wages, mental anguish, loss of companionship, medical and funeral costs as well as other expenses. There are several different types of wrongful death claims, and negligence due to medical malpractice is a common example. In order to hold a physician or institution liable in a wrongful death claim, they must have breached a duty that was owed and is proven to be the direct and proximate cause of death. In most cases, actual testimonies from physicians are needed to prove this case. As wrongful death claims can be complex and emotionally draining, a skilled and experienced law firm will protect and defend you and your family, and work to help you receive the just compensation deserved.
We understand that a wrongful death claim doesn’t bring back a loved one. However, it can provide financial security for many years to come. If someone in your family was killed in a car accident, died as a result of medical malpractice or passed away from any other circumstance that leads you to believe it was a wrongful death, contact O’Donnell Law Offices. Doing this may not only provide the family with financial security, but also a level of closure. To discuss the next steps as you deal with your loss, contact O’Donnell Law Offices to schedule a free consultation. There is no fee or costs until we win your case.
