Pursuing a Fatal Car Accident Claim in Virginia
If the negligence of another driver caused the death of your loved one, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death claim. This enables eligible family members to legally seek monetary compensation for the loss of their loved one.
Damages for Wrongful Death Claims May Include:
- Immediate relief from medical costs and funeral costs
- Loss of victim’s future income
- Loss of consortium (care, companionship, and protection)
- Sorrow and mental anguish
- Punitive damages
In Virginia, the statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim is two years from the date of the deceased person’s death. If a wrongful death claim is not filed within two years, the case cannot be heard in court. To begin the fight for compensation, be sure to reach out to our Richmond legal team as soon as possible. Our lawyers handle claims involving wrongful death caused by car accidents, defective products, medical malpractice, assault, and the careless actions of others.
