Philadelphia Wrongful Death Lawyers

Securing Justice & Financial Support for Grieving Families

Since 1958, The Beasley Firm has fought for injured persons and their families, obtaining over $2 billion in awards for our clients through hundreds of multi-million dollar settlements and jury verdicts. Our attorneys help bereaved people in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware seek the justice, emotional closure, and financial compensation that a wrongful death claim provides.

Our Philadelphia wrongful death attorneys have a history of developing thorough and compelling cases, resulting in some of the largest wrongful death awards that the state (and the nation) have seen. For instance, we obtained a record-setting $29 million verdict on behalf of a pilot who was killed after losing control of his airplane because of a defective seat.

In 2010, an appeals court affirmed a $20.5 million verdict on behalf of a young woman who tragically died as a result of a liposuction procedure-this result included $15 million in punitive damages, the largest award of its kind in Pennsylvania.

A Record of Success

Jim Beasley holds the record for the highest jury settlement ever in Philadephia, $907 million in 1999 against fugitive murderer Ira Einhorn. Beasley’s pro bono clients were the family of Einhorn’s murder victim, Holly Maddux; the record verdict prevented Einhorn from cashing in on a book or movie deal.
