An investigation by NationSwell looked at county data in six states ‚Äî Arizona, New Jersey, Louisiana, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas ‚Äî which showed that thousands of families are denied compensation each year because of the contributory conduct clause. Regulators involved in processing claims say they are just following federal law and that there needs to be top-down change in order for there to be significant progress on the best way to assist financially strapped families. But one victim services group, Every Murder Is Real, based in Philadelphia ‚Äî i.e. the city with the highest number of compensation claims filed each year in Pennsylvania ‚Äî is helping families navigate the system and fight for their right to fair treatment.
