What Is Considered Wrongful Death?
According to Virginia's wrongful death statute, wrongful death claims
can be filed after an accident that was caused by an individual's
negligence leading to another person's death. Whether the wrongful
death was a result of an
nursing home abuse,
medical malpractice, or another circumstance, we can help! We understand that no amount of
compensation could ever make up for the emotional pain you are experiencing,
but it can relieve financial burdens associated with the case.
Types of Wrongful Death Compensation in Virginia
You may be eligible to recover compensation for any of the following:
- Lost future income if the loved one who died was the primary earner for
- Medical costs leading up to the individual's death
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Compensation on behalf of the pain and suffering your loved one may have
experienced at the time of their death
- Compensation for surviving spouse or family members who have been deprived
of their loved one's companionship or support
- Punitive damages if the negligence leading to their death was particularly
reckless or willful
Virginia Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations
A "statute of limitations" is the time limit placed on how long
after an incident you are permitted to file a lawsuit. In Virginia, the
statute of limitations for wrongful death claims is 2 years. This means
that you are allowed to bring a lawsuit up to 2 years after the date of
your loved one's death. If you do not bring your lawsuit to the court
within that period of time, you will most likely give up your right to
file a lawsuit at all. Do not delay!
Filing a wrongful death claim can protect your family's rights and
well-being during this time of grief. If you are ready to move forward
