Wrongful Death Vs. Personal Injury Claims
In the State of Virginia, wrongful death occurs when the negligent or wrongful acts of an individual or corporate entity result in the death of a person. While there are routes to recover monetary damages in these situations, they differ from a personal injury claim or lawsuit. While personal injury damages are designed to compensate the victim directly, wrongful death damages are limited to compensation for losses suffered by surviving family members of the deceased.
Legal Options For Surviving Family Members
The immediate family of a person who is killed as a result of another’s negligence has a legal right in Virginia to file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover compensation for their loved one’s losses. Virginia law allows a spouse, child or parent to file a wrongful death lawsuit, after someone causes the death of their loved one. A spouse includes both married and common law spouses, and those who are legally separated. A wide range of accidents causing fatal injuries may be the basis of a wrongful death claim in Virginia including:
