Helping Pennsylvania Families Who Have Lost A Loved One In A Fatal Motor Vehicle Accident

There may be nothing more devastating than losing a loved one in an accident that occurred because of another person's negligence. Without warning, a person who was an integral part of your life and someone you likely relied on for financial and emotional support has been taken from you forever.

Surviving family members have the right to be compensated for the losses they have suffered because of their loved one's passing. These are very emotional times for the family, and dealing with complex legal matters is likely the farthest thing from their minds. An experienced Harrisburg personal injury lawyer can take care of the legal issues for you and help to ensure that your interests are protected.

The Supportive Representation You Need During A Difficult Time

At the Law Offices of Katherine L. Niven & Associates, PC, we represent families who are suffering due to the loss of a loved one in a fatal motor vehicle accident. We understand what a difficult time this is for you, and we will do everything in our power to secure the best possible outcome in the most stress-free manner for you and your children.

We know that there is no amount of money that could ever make up for the loss of your loved one, but monetary compensation is the only form of justice available to families in these cases. We work closely with you to understand the impact of your loved one's passing on your family and diligently pursue the maximum level of compensation available for your claim.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, we may seek damages for the following considerations:

  • Hospital and medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Estate administration expenses
  • Loss of future income and inheritance
  • Loss of benefits
  • Loss of household services
  • Loss of love and companionship
  • Loss of guidance and care for the children
  • Pain and suffering
  • Any available punitive damages

Survival Actions On Behalf Of Your Loved One

A survival action is, essentially, the wrongful death claim your loved one could have pursued against the negligent parties had he or she lived. These actions are brought on behalf of your loved one's estate, and any damages would be distributed along with the rest of the assets in your loved one's will. We closely review every wrongful death case to determine whether a survival action would be viable.
