Lehigh Valley Personal Injury Car Accident causes Pedestrian Wrongful Death

A Lehigh Valley personal injury pedestrian accident took place on Delaware Avenue on December 12, 2018. The victim was transported to St. Luke’s University Hospital in Bethlehem PA after the personal injury accident. There, the Lehigh County Coroner pronounced the 81-year-old’s wrongful death at 9:00 p.m. The victim’s cause of death was attributed to multiple blunt force trauma by the Lehigh County Coroner. The pedestrian personal injury accident took place around 7:00 a.m. at the 200 block of Delaware Ave.  

The Lehigh Valley personal injury lawyers at the Trapani Law Firm would like to pass along our thoughts and prayers to all family members and friends affected by this Lehigh Valley personal injury accident. Our Bethlehem car accident lawyers recommend immediate medical treatment after a car accident in order to prevent any long-term personal injuries. Back and neck pain can lead to very serious medical conditions if they are not properly treated. 

A Lehigh 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 Bethlehem 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. If you have lost a loved one, our wrongful death law firm would like to help. Please call our Lehigh Valley wrongful death lawyers today for a free consultation.
