Law Offices of George J. Costopoulos

Wrongful Death

The death of a loved one is the most difficult experience your family can endure. This is why the Law Office of George J. Costopoulos is dedicated to providing compassionate assistance and legal representation to those individuals who lose a family member due to the recklessness or carelessness of another.

In Pennsylvania, when the death of a loved one is due to someone else’s negligent or intentional behavior, the law allows family members to pursue an action for “wrongful death” and/or a claim known as a “survival action.” Examples of these cases include fatal motor vehicle collisions, pedestrian collisions, medical malpractice, and other incidents causing fatalities.

Because wrongful death is the most serious of all personal injuries, surviving family members may be entitled to substantial monetary compensation for the wide array of losses and damages which inevitably arise in these tragic cases. Of course, we recognize that a compensation award or settlement can never replace a loved one. Yet, these resolutions can bring closure to these painful ordeals and help surviving family members move forward with their lives.

Our office will represent your family with the personal attention and guidance these cases demand. We also handle these cases on a contingency fee basis, guaranteeing that our clients will pay nothing for our legal services unless we obtain a recovery on their behalf.

Please do not hesitate to contact us for a free consultation. We will gladly schedule an appointment to suit your schedule.
