An Experienced Philadelphia Wrongful Death Lawyer from van der Veen, Hartshorn, Levin & Lindheim can Help You Prove Your Wrongful Death Claim

Wrongful death claims are derivative claims. This means that the survivors step into the shoes of the deceased to bring the lawsuit that the deceased would have brought had they survived. Like other personal injury claims, the survivors must provide evidence to support their lawsuit.

Many wrongful death lawsuits are brought for negligence. In order to be successful in such a case, you would need to prove the four elements below:

  • Duty – you will need to show that the defendant (the at-fault party) had a duty towards your loved one. They had a duty to exercise reasonable care.
  • Breach – you will need to show that the defendant did not exercise reasonable care
  • Causation – you will need to show that the breach of reasonable care by the defendant was the cause of the accident or injuries that resulted in the death of your loved one
  • Damages – you and your family have suffered economic and non-economic losses as a result of the death of your loved one.

We offer compassionate yet aggressive legal services to support bereaved families. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you with financial recovery after the loss of a loved one.
