Compassionate Assistance With Wrongful Death Matters in Alexandria, VA
Experienced accident attorneys fight for grieving families
The loss of a family member is one of the most challenging times in life, but when the death was due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of another person, the loss and consequences are often incomprehensible. Our legal system cannot restore a life; however, it does demand that a person who causes the death of another pay fair and reasonable compensation. 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
- The value of the services, care, and protection provided by the deceased to survivors
In Virginia, 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. The court decides the proportion of damages to be awarded to each beneficiary.
