A: In general, victims of stockbroker fraud can make multiple claims against a stockbroker and/or investment advisor. Each case depends on the exact circumstances of the case. Cases may be brought under the Pennsylvania Securities Act or federal laws. Breach of contract claims may also be warranted.
In some situations, victims may be able to recover the difference in the value of the stock when it was sold versus the victim’s purchase price, plus interest. Other damages available include investment fees, distributions, etc. Punitive damages may also be awarded.
