Wrongful death cases arise from a negligent act or omission that causes a person’s death. Wrongful death can be the result of medical malpractice, an auto accident, truck accident, construction accident, defective product, an unsafe workplace, nursing home abuse, child abuse, foster care abuse or any other negligent act. When a wrongful death occurs, it is extremely important to have a skilled and passionate lawyer to support the victim’s family and fight for their legal rights. At our Philadelphia based law firm, Rizio, Hamilton & Kane, P.C., our attorneys make themselves available to their clients at all times and value an open attorney-client relationship. Our firm works to ensure that all RHK clients are properly guided and zealously represented in order to procure a successful settlement or verdict.
Wrongful death claims are brought by the surviving relatives of the deceased, generally the decedent’s spouse, children or parents. These relatives can recover for, among other things, medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, lost wages and loss of future income, lost benefits and loss of future benefits, loss of companionship and pain and suffering. Minor children may also recover for loss of love and affection, care, guidance, parenting and support. If the surviving relatives of the deceased feel that their relative was a victim of wrongful death, they should seek a personal injury lawyer to assist them with their potential case.
