The types of damages to which you may be entitled to can include, but are not limited to:

  • medical and funeral expenses
  • loss of anticipated earnings
  • pain and suffering of the surviving family members
  • loss of companionship
  • loss of medical benefits
  • loss of pension benefits
  • punitive damages

Like all laws, there is a statute of limitations that limits the time the heirs have to file a lawsuit for wrongful death or else it will be barred. That time limit depends on whom and what caused the wrongful death. For these and many other reasons, it is best to seek legal advice as soon as possible as any delay could cause you to lose your rights to recover forever.

The personal injury lawyers at Lehman Pastino Law Firm understand that if you have recently lost a family member, you may be hesitant to see their death rehashed in a court of law.  In cases where the deceased has been the primary source of income for the family, monetary compensation will allow survivors the means to move on with their lives.

Client Reviews

Lehman and Pastino represented me in my auto accident suit… I received PERSONAL attention from Lehman and Pastino…they travelled with me to my doctor’s appointments, completed all my paperwork, and clearly explained all my options. They treated me like a PERSON, not just a client. Their knowledge of the law was precise and “on the money.” I would recommend them for all of anyone’s legal needs.
