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 Easton wrongful death case is filed on behalf of the beneficiaries of the victim’s estate. In Easton PA and throughout the Lehigh Valley 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.
