Tim Rayne, a Personal Injury attorney with the Chester County, Pennsylvania, law firm of MacElree Harvey, has published a new book, "A Lawyer's Guide to Wrongful Death Cases." The book provides simple, yet comprehensive, answers to common questions that arise after a violent or accidental death, such as:
- What is a Wrongful Death claim?
- What compensation is available to the family?
- Who can make a Wrongful Death claim?
- What is the role of a Personal Injury attorney?
"For years I have been helping families with their legal claims after the wrongful death of a loved one, and, in each case, there are common questions and misunderstandings about the legal issues which must be dealt with," says Tim. "I wrote this book so that families can use it as a resource to learn about Pennsylvania Wrongful Death Law and be able to protect their legal rights."
Tim's book explains that the most common Wrongful Death claims arise from murder, vehicle accident cases (car, truck or motorcycle accidents), medical malpractice, accidents caused by dangerous products or machinery and workplace accidents. Pennsylvania law provides that surviving family members may be entitled to compensation to try to make up for financial losses, including: medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, lost income and lost financial support. The book explains who has the right to bring a Wrongful Death claim and how the claim is handled from beginning to end.
Tim has written two other books, "A Lawyer's Guide to Personal Injury Cases" and "A Lawyer's Guide to Purchasing Car Insurance." To download a copy of any of Tim's books or request that a free copy be mailed to you, visit Tim's website at http://www.macelree.com/timrayne.
