How much is a Pennsylvania wrongful death case worth?Return to Video FAQs
That depends upon who died. Under Pennsylvania law, there are certain categories of recovery under a wrongful death case, and really, wrongful death and survival action is the terminology that we use in Pennsylvania, but you can recover lost wages. You can recover medical bills that you had. You can recover the pain and suffering from the time of the injury to the time of the death. And all of these recoveries are for your estate that are established by your beneficiaries, and the money goes through the court system, approved by the court, and into your estate.
