The unexpected loss of a loved one can be devastating for a family. Losing a loved one because of a fatal car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, medical malpractice or workplace accident is not something any family should have to go through.
Families who are facing unforeseen expenses like medical bills, funeral expenses and loss of wages can feel overwhelmed during this emotional time. If the accident was the result of the negligence of someone else, then the family has the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit. A wrongful death suit can be filed against someone who committed an act of negligence, causing the death of another person. This can include medical malpractice, car, truck, motorcycle and bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, or other circumstances that occur due to one's negligence.
Our firm has been helping families who have suffered great losses in Virginia since 1954. We have the experience necessary to help families obtain fair settlements for their losses. A wrongful death claim is filed in two parts in Virginia. The negligence of a party first needs to be established and then damages must be proven. We can help establish both of these for your case and get the pecuniary damages you deserve. We may also be able to have the courts award punitive damages.
Losing a loved one because of the negligence of another person can leave a family devastated. Thankfully, we can help these families begin a new chapter in life without having to worry about financial devastation. Although nothing can bring back the loss of a loved one, we can help families recover financially so that they are able to move on. For more information, please visit our wrongful death page.
