It costs money to bring a Pennsylvania wrongful death case. There’s a filing fee for a complaint in every county in Pennsylvania that ranges anywhere between $400 and $600, depending upon the county, but you don’t pay it. Typically, you hire a lawyer and the lawyer advances the cost. You don’t pay anything ever unless there’s a recovery. That’s called a contingent fee. You wanna make sure when you hire a lawyer for a wrongful death case in Pennsylvania you’re doing so under a contingent fee contract.
