Wrongful Death and Survival Actions

Wrongful Death cases are the most tragic cases we encounter.

We understand how a family, a workplace, and a community can be impacted when a life is unexpectedly cut short. These are serious cases that demand great attention to detail.

Our Personal Injury Attorneys are here to resolve your case as quickly as possible and ensure that you receive fair compensation.

Bononi & Company, Wrongful Death Attorneys

Our Personal Injury Attorneys have experience in Wrongful Death cases. Attorneys in our firm have been recognized by the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, Super Lawyers, and the National Trial Lawyers Association. Our firm’s staff includes full time paralegals, full time legal secretaries, and full-time accountants. This makes us always prepared to handle serious cases.  

Having CPAs (Certified Public Accountants) on staff puts us in a unique position to be able to fight for you in the courtroom and to be able to minimize what taxes could be owed by you and your family.

Bononi and Company is based in Westmoreland County, with offices in Greensburg, Latrobe, and Irwin. Our attorneys live in this community.

Fatal Vehicle Crash

Unfortunately, fatal car accidents are common. Far too often we read of fatal accidents on Route 30, Route 22, and on Route 70. These cases usually involve auto insurance companies that instead of taking responsibility for their insured, they try and justify paying less than fair compensation.

When someone has lost their life, there is no greater injustice than inadequate compensation.  

Fatal Truck Accidents

When a tractor trailer is involved in an accident, the results are usually catastrophic. Route 70 through Westmoreland County, from New Stanton to Belle Vernon, is where we see many truck accidents. In these cases, both the trucking company and the individual driving may be liable to you if they caused the accident. When the truck accident results in death, this is not the time to guess who is responsible.

Allow our team to review your case to determine who is responsible and to hold them accountable.  

Accidents Resulting in Death

An accident, such as a fall, may result in a wrongful death. Speaking with a Personal Injury Attorney at Bononi and Company will help determine whether or not someone is liable for that accident. Our Personal Injury team is trained to review your case and advise you as to whether or not we believe that you should receive compensation. We offer free consultations for Wrongful Death and Survival Action cases so that you know what options you have.

Defective Products and Wrongful Death

Goods that we buy may be poorly manufactured or have a faulty design. A car’s airbag, a lawn mower, or a prescribed drug can be the cause of death.

Defective Product cases can by complicated. 

Was the product manufactured in a way that made it likely to harm someone? Was the design dangerous? Did the product have adequate warnings to place someone on notice that it may harm them?

A Personal Injury Attorney at Bononi and Company will evaluate your case for free and give you honest advise about your case.

Negotiating Medical Bills and Insurance Claims

Our Personal Injury Team will help to negotiate medical bills and insurance claims so that you pay as little as possible. Many people do not realize that Medicare, Medicaid, the U.S. Office of Veterans Affairs, and your own insurance company may have a claim against your deceased loved one.

Just because you received a bill does not mean that the amount of the bill will be what you have to pay. Our firm is experienced in negotiations to reduce the amount owed. This helps to ensure that you receive as much of the settlement proceeds as possible.

Contingency Fee

Our firm understands that accidents that result in a Wrongful Death are sudden. We never require a client to pay any upfront costs in Wrongful Death cases. We also handle Wrongful Death and Survival Actions by contingency fee. This means you pay nothing unless we can help you negotiate a settlement or we win a judgment at trial.

Administering the Estate

In addition to recovering compensation for the Wrongful Death or Survival Action, our firm has a team of Attorneys that handle Estate Administration and Probate. When the time comes to administer the Estate, our Personal Injury Team will work with our Estate Administration practice to make sure that all basis are covered. Our firm works together on Wrongful Death and Survival Action to ensure that you are not burdened by the legal system.
