A personal injury accident took place on Route 33 on August 30, 2018 leading to the wrongful death of a trucker. Sadly, the 33-year-old trucker from Ontario, Canada was struck and killed just north of Easton, PA. He was standing next to his tractor-trailer truck when another vehicle struck him. Pennsylvania State Police and the Northampton County Coroner’s office are investing the Easton personal injury accident. The right lane of Route 33 was shut down while a specialist conducted an accident reconstruction.

A Northampton County wrongful death lawsuit must be filed by the “personal representative” of the deceased’s estate. This representative is typically outlined in the victim’s will. If there is not a will, the court may assign a representative. The wrongful death case is filed on behalf of the beneficiaries of the victim’s estate. In Allentown and throughout Pennsylvania, these beneficiaries are limited to the spouse, children or parents of the victim. Many times a wrongful death beneficiary analysis can be complex. In that circumstance it is best to have an experienced wrongful death attorney analyze the facts. If you have lost a loved one, our wrongful death law firm would like to help.
