Wrongful Death

Compassionate Representation For Wrongful Death Matters in Alexandria and Fairfax County, VA

Experienced attorneys here to help grieving families

Dealing with the loss of a beloved family member is always difficult.  The emotional pain or possibly anger one feels is often made worse when the death was caused by the careless conduct of an individual or a business. Additional stressors and challenges can result from its sudden nature, such as the pain of not getting to say goodbye, regrets of things said or left unsaid, and questions and worry regarding income if the family member killed was a wage earner and supporter.

In Virginia, this compensation includes the following:

  • Hospital and medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • The sorrow, mental anguish, and solace of the survivors
  • Loss of financial support for dependents

In Virginia, the family members entitled to financial compensation for the loss of a loved one is determined by statute. Generally speaking, the surviving spouse and children of the deceased may be awarded damages. In addition, any grandchildren of the deceased, if the parent of that child is also deceased, are eligible to receive compensation. If there is no surviving spouse, children, or grandchildren, the parents and siblings and any other relative who was dependent on the deceased person and lived in the same household may receive compensation. If there is a surviving spouse but no children, damages may be awarded to the spouse and to the parents of the deceased.

If a settlement is reached, it must be approved by the Court. This is required to ensure that the settlement is fair to each of the survivors entitled to be compensated. If the case goes to trial, the jury determines the amount of damages to be awarded to each beneficiary.

As is clear from the brief discussion above, considering and pursuing a wrongful death claim is a complex undertaking and is one with important statutory requirements that have to be complied with in order to successfully pursue such a claim. As such, if you are considering such a claim, you must speak with an experienced attorney.
