Wrongful death cases differ from other personal injury cases for several reasons. First and foremost, families and friends have lost a loved one and they are hurting, searching for answers, and may be uncertain of their legal rights. Second, Virginia wrongful death law is governed by specific, complex statutes that place the burden on that same family to prove their loss was caused by the wrongdoing of another.
Our attorneys can thoroughly examine your situation and provide honest answers and clear direction regarding your legal rights. Wrongful death cases arise from both situations centered on negligence and also intentionally tortious conduct, and our firm stands ready to help you.
In wrongful death cases, as in other torts in Virginia, there is a statute of limitations. If a suit is not filed within a certain period of time, you are forever barred from recovery.
