        Defining Wrongful Death Cases

        Wrongful death is a type of civil lawsuit filed when surviving family members have lost a loved one in an accident that could’ve been avoided but was caused by negligence or carelessness. The law states that you can be eligible to receive wrongful death compensation damages if your loved one died in a way that was directly caused by someone else’s actions. Basically, if you can show that your loved one would still be alive today if the person responsible for your loved ones’ death had acted differently, then you can file for a wrongful death claim. Our Virginia wrongful death lawyers can help you better understand this during your free consultation with us.

        Those who are bringing a wrongful death civil lawsuit most often are going to be the family members of the lost loved one. These civil court cases are filed in an effort to get these individuals financial compensation for the damages and injuries both the deceased and the surviving family have suffered.

        We would like to hear from you right away if you’ve had to suffer through the tragedy of losing someone you love in an accident that could’ve been avoided if someone had done their job to keep your loved one safe.

        The Plaintiff for Your Case

        Something that we commonly hear from people about their concerns is that they don’t know who should file the civil lawsuit against the liable party. Typically, the law in Virginia is going to have a statue about who is entitled to bring this case. Generally speaking, this is the hierarchy of who is allowed to be the plaintiff in a wrongful death case:

        • The first one in line to receive wrongful death compensation is the spouse of the passed loved one
        • Next in line to file the claim would be any children that the loved one had
        • If there wasn’t a spouse and there weren’t any children, then the parents or the guardians of the loved one would be filing the case
        • From there, the plaintiff can be a family member that fits under the statute laws in Virginia

        Our Virginia wrongful death lawyers will better help you understand who is entitled to be the plaintiff of your case and we will guide that person every step of the way through this case to ensure that their rights to justice are protected on behalf of themselves, their loved one who has passed and the family. Call us right away if you believe that you should be filing a case of wrongful death.

        Damages in a Virginia Wrongful Death Case

        Seeking wrongful death damages is going to involve financial compensation alone. We understand that there might be some confusion over the difference between a wrongful death civil case as opposed to a criminal case for homicide. We know that one of the most famous wrongful death cases in America involved the family of Ronald Goldman against O.J. Simpson in which they filed for the wrongful death of Goldman claiming that Simpson was liable. The Goldman family was to receive money damages. They did this because Simpson was acquitted of criminal charges. If your loved one was murdered with an intent to harm, a criminal case will be what you pursue in order to subject the accused to criminal penalties. With a wrongful death case, however, you are going to be seeking money damages. The main difference between pursuing a criminal case versus a wrongful death case is the punishment that the liable party faces. Wrongful death cases are also typically accidental.

        The types of compensation damages that you receive as the plaintiff of a wrongful death case breakdown into two main categories. The first category is going to be the financial losses that happened because of the untimely death of your loved one and can be broken down as followed:

        • Funeral and burial expenses
        • The cost of any final treatments that your loved one underwent an attempt to save their life
        • Any benefits or wages that this loved one would have brought in to provide for their family if they didn’t meet an untimely death at the fault of a liable party
        • Property damage that was suffered; this can be found in wrongful death cases where there was a car accident involved and the car was totaled

        Next, you can receive damages that are meant to help the surviving family after they have lost someone that they love in an untimely manner. This kind of compensation is more for non-economic damages, which are harder to calculate. Here are some examples:

        • The pain and suffering of losing a family member who cared for you and was a companion to you
        • Losing the value of the role that this loved one played in your household
        • Mental anguish related to an untimely death that you have to grieve with your family

        Just as everyone’s life is unique and different, every single personal injury case for wrongful death is going to be unique and different, meaning you cannot compare your loss to someone else’s and you shouldn’t compare your wrongful death case to anyone else’s. That is why you need the help of Virginia wrongful death lawyers who understand the complexities of these cases and know how to handle the distinct challenges that they bring.

        We make it our main mission to bring justice to our clients and giving them a smooth experience with these types of cases. They are never easy for the families and the last thing that you need to worry about is how to litigate the case or the stress of a lawsuit.

        Act Quickly

        It is extremely important that you are aware of the statute of limitation, which is the amount of time that you legally have to file your wrongful death civil lawsuit. In Virginia, you are given two years from the date of losing your loved one to file your case. If you let time slip away from you and you missed this two-year deadline, you will be barred from receiving justice. We hope that you act urgently in seeking consultation from our lawyers. We are here to take your call as soon as you possibly can make it so you don’t miss out on justice.
