Wrongful Death

Ross Feller Casey is the region's leading wrongful death law firm with an impressive record of fighting for families who lost loved ones through the negligence of others

Ross Feller Casey is recognized as the preeminent catastrophic injury law firm in Pennsylvania and New Jersey – a position that was solidified by a remarkable record of legal successes over the past two years. In that period, the firm recovered over $400 million for its individual clients, including numerous seven-and eight-figure recoveries in wrongful death lawsuits.

An estimated 121,000 people die each year across America as a result of preventable accidents, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Death, legally referred to as "wrongful death," is the term used in a civil case for death brought about by another's negligence.

Wrongful death lawsuits are filed by the surviving family, which is the immediate family, such as a spouse, children, parents or siblings.
