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 auto accident, water accident, 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 your family
  • 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 with your case, please contact our wrongful death lawyers in Newport News today.
