Strong And Caring Help After A Car Crash

No one should ever have to experience the sudden and unexpected death of a spouse, child, parent or other family member in a fatal car accident. The grief or devastation endured by surviving family members is almost incomprehensible.

At the law firm of Hof & Reid LLC, we have provided honest, empathetic, personalized and experienced legal counsel to families throughout the Lehigh Valley since 1942.

Why Bother Pursuing A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

Although a wrongful death lawsuit will never fill the void of your lost loved one, the compensation you recover through a settlement or verdict may help your family achieve a sense of closure or peace of mind, knowing that justice was served.

A verdict or settlement in a wrongful death lawsuit can also provide your family with the essential financial resources to compensate for and cover funeral expenses, final medical expenses, expenses for replacement of household services provided by the deceased, and loss of primary income and support to your family.

Negligence Is Never An Acceptable Reason To Say Goodbye

Sadly, many fatal car and truck accidents could have been completely avoided. Too many accidents are caused due to the negligence of others such as:

  • Negligent, careless or inattentive drivers on the road, including drunk drivers
  • Defective design or maintenance of the roads, contributing to a highway fatality
  • Auto parts that fail when needed because defects in manufacturing or design resulted in defective auto parts
  • Other types of negligence contributing to the car accident

As experienced Pennsylvania wrongful death attorneys, we will investigate the circumstances of the accident to ensure that there is accountability for any such negligence. In doing so, we take the burden off your family. We identify sources of responsibility — parties who should be held financially accountable for the accident and your loss. Along with a wrongful death claim, a survival claim may be pursued to recover for your loved one’s suffering prior to his or her death.
