It is difficult for family members to think about legal matters immediately after losing a loved one. However, the future of the survivors – spouses, children and others – may depend on the ability to pay medical expenses and recoup lost wages and future earnings.
Helping You Understand Your Rights After The Death Of A Loved One
The deadline for filing a wrongful death action in Virginia can come quickly, and any delay can result in the loss of memories and important evidence. This is why it is important to seek the assistance of an experienced attorney and learn about your options. The attorneys at Duff & Kronfeld, P.C. can provide you with the support and guidance you need during this difficult time.
Family members of wrongful death victims may be entitled to economic damages such as lost future earnings; non economic damages, including an amount for the loss of enjoyment of life; an award for pain and suffering; funeral and burial expenses and any medical expenses incurred. If the responsible party acted willfully or wantonly, a jury may also award punitive damages.
