One of the most devastating life experiences is to lose a loved one from your family by the negligence or wrongdoing of another. If your loved one was lost in an accident or died by the negligence of another, then you have a right to pursue compensation for your loss. Though I know that, unfortunately, being financially compensated for your loss will not bring back your loved one, the compensation that you receive can help provide for your family’s future and any struggle with financial hardship. See Case Example.

Common causes for a wrongful death claim may arise from:

  • Car accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Trucking accidents
  • Premises liability
  • Medical malpractice
  • Pedestrian accidents
Wrongful Death
The law in Virginia allows for a claim of wrongful death damages and compensation in a wrongful death action which may include the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Future income of your loved one
  • Health insurance and benefits
  • Projected future financial contributions
  • Funeral costs
  • Loss of value of services to the family

Your wrongful death lawsuit will also pursue financial compensation for “the loss of solace.” Loss of solace refers to the unique loss and grief experiences now and forthcoming by the loved ones. Also, this loss of a loved one includes the loss of companionship, love, guidance, advise, comfort, and grief that the loss of a loved one brings to the family.
