At Stapp Law, LLC, Attorney Gregory Stapp and staff know that no amount of money can make up for the loss of your loved one. We offer our sincere condolences to you during this difficult time. I firmly believe that the surviving family and loved ones should be granted the maximum financial compensation that the law allows for the loss of income, care, companionship, protection, love, affection, guidance, and other losses suffered. If a defective product, improper conduct, criminal act, or negligence has contributed to or resulted in the death of your loved one, I am here to provide all of the assistance necessary to ensure that you are able to receive full, fair compensation for your loss in Tioga County and throughout my entire central Pennsylvania service area.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
You can file a wrongful death lawsuit if your family member, loved one, or financial benefactor has lost his or her life as a result of the actions or negligence of any person or entity. Persons eligible to file a formal wrongful death lawsuit to pursue financial compensation include the deceased’s:
Typically, a successful wrongful death lawsuit will satisfy the following elements:
- The death of the victim was caused (either in whole or in part) by the conduct (or lack thereof) of the defendant.
- The defendant must have been strictly liable for the death or shown to have acted in a negligent manner.
- The victim must be survived by beneficiaries (spouse, children, parents, etc.) who are capable of receiving the financial component of the wrongful death lawsuit.
- Damages were caused by the victim’s death (income loss, medical bills, funeral expenses, etc.)
Experience to Secure the Future Following a Wrongful Death
I have successfully handled hundreds of personal injury and wrongful death claims and lawsuits and have the experience to ensure that the future of all dependents is secured. It is impossible to place a value on a human life and extremely difficult to place a price on the financial support and comfort of our lost loved ones. At Stapp Law, LLC, I understand how difficult this time is for you. However, for your future and the future of affected children and dependents, it is critically important to begin the process of filing your wrongful death lawsuit as soon as possible before evidence is lost or tampered with. Statutes of limitation also apply.
Minimize Financial Hardship and Gain Closure and a Sense of Justice
Although your loved one is, tragically, gone, I will work hard to ensure that all survivors have the best chance of experiencing minimal financial side effects and hardship from the loss. This includes ensuring that debts incurred as a result of the loss will be fully paid, future anticipated earnings will be replaced, and restitution will be provided to cover the bills, education expenses, and other material necessities now and into the future. I understand that it may seem like an added and unacceptable burden to file a lawsuit now, after all that you have already been through and are continuing to deal with.
However, I assure you that I will do my best to handle everything as smoothly as possible to minimize any additional suffering for yourself and your family -and I guarantee you that you will be pleased that you placed the call to initiate the wrongful death lawsuit. Financial strain is the last thing that you want to add to your burden following the loss of your loved one. In addition, many survivors enjoy some small sense of closure and justice following the verdict award announcement for their wrongful death claim.
Compensation for Loss of Income, Pain, Suffering & Punitive Damages
I have represented families who have lost loved ones as a result of automobile accidents, gas and coal industry-related accidents, and other tragedies. Each case is unique. However, damages will be awarded based on the specific circumstances of the victim’s death and may include restitution and compensation for:
- LOSS OF THE VICTIM’S INCOME
- LOSS OF EXPECTED FUTURE EARNINGS
- NON-ECONOMIC LOSSES
- LOSS OF CORSORTIUM (LOVE, CARE, & COMPANIONSHIP)
- PAIN & SUFFERING (EMOTIONAL & MENTAL ANGUISH OR GRIEF)
- PUNITIVE DAMAGES AGAINST THE AT-FAULT PARTY
