Philadelphia Accidental and Wrongful Death Lawyers
Pennsylvania roads are dangerous places, and Philadelphia County leads the state in the number of fatal car accidents each year.

If you have lost a loved one in a fatal car accident, no amount of compensation can bring your loved one back. But the wrongful death lawyers at DiSandro & Malloy, PC can help you face a future without the companionship and financial support of your friend or family member.
Compensation for Wrongful Death
A lawyer can help you fight to get compensation to cover medical and funeral expenses of your loved one. But expenses that have already been incurred are not nearly enough to help you financially cope with the loss of your loved one.
As part of an accidental death lawsuit, a lawyer can also help you fight to recover:
- Loss of expected earnings (between the time of the fatal accident and expected retirement)
- Loss of medical and/or retirement benefits
- Loss of inheritance
A wrongful death lawyer also knows that a fair settlement includes monetary compensation for your pain and suffering and loss of your loved one’s companionship.
Do Not Wait to Get a Wrongful Death Lawyer
If you have lost a loved one because of a fatal accident, do not wait to contact a lawyer. Pennsylvania has a statute of limitations on wrongful death cases. You must file an accidental death lawsuit within two years of your loved one’s death to be eligible to receive compensation.
