Representing Families Touched By Fatal Workplace Accidents

If your family member has died in a workplace accident in Pennsylvania, you may be entitled to benefits from workers’ compensation. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you may also have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party that caused your loved one’s death.

At Shollenberger Januzzi & Wolfe, LLP, our lawyers are here to help you deal with the legal and financial issues you are facing following the death of a family member. With offices in Harrisburg and Enola, we represent families throughout central Pennsylvania. We offer a free initial consultation to answer your questions and explain your rights.

Workers’ Compensation Death Benefits

If your family member died within 300 weeks of a work injury, you are entitled to workers’ compensation death benefits. Spouses, children and other dependents may be entitled to payment of weekly workers’ compensation benefits. For a spouse, these benefits are payable for life. You are also entitled to burial expenses.

Wrongful Death Claims

If your family member’s death was caused by the negligence of a third party (meaning someone who does not work for your deceased family member’s employer), you may also have a right to seek compensation by filing a wrongful death claim against that person or entity. Our law firm has a great deal of experience with wrongful death litigation. We can also help you deal with the other practical challenges that families experience following the loss of a loved one, such as dealing with the probate court and insurance issues.
