Wrongful death cases in Pennsylvania brought by loved ones

Losing a loved one because of another individual's wrongful actions is such a tragedy. While we all know that the victim who died cannot bring a suit against the person or company that caused his or her death, the family of this person can.

Bringing a wrongful death suit gives the victim's family a chance to heal. It gives the people who suffered this loss a chance to receive recompense for their great loss of companionship, loss of support, medical expenses and even funeral expenses.

Is a High-Low Agreement in my favor?

Any attorney who is worth his salt knows a little secret -- any time a case gets put before a jury, there is no way to predict the outcome will be in the client's favor. This applies to all facets of the law, but is particularly applicable in cases of personal injury and wrongful death.

However, there is a way to game the odds a bit. Enter the High-Low Agreement.

Attorney makes a difference in vehicle accident in Pennsylvania

Motor vehicle accidents occur daily in Pennsylvania. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that approximately 1,500 people die in vehicle accidents every year in this state due to motor vehicle accidents.

Attorney team can help with a case of medical malpractice

When a case of medical malpractice is filed, this means that a preliminary finding of negligence by the doctor has been filed. The authorities of the state of Pennsylvania made this a law. It seems to benefit the doctor, and not the person who was injured or hurt.

You very often will need a team of professionals who know the law of this state and know what to do next in a case like this. Do you need another medical opinion? Is there going to be expert testimony given that can aid your case? Are there witnesses? These are all questions that an experienced attorney, like the ones at Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman can help you get answers to.

It appears that traffic deaths in this state in 2014 saw a reduction. The secretary of state made an announcement that the state is working toward zero traffic deaths eventually.
