There is nothing worse than the pain of losing a loved one in an accident that did not have to happen. As you work through your shock and anguish, legal action may seem impossible to contemplate. But you probably realize that unless you hold the negligent parties accountable, you can never again be at peace. At a time like this, Morrison, Ross and Whelan is prepared to help. With more than 30 years of experience in catastrophic injury and wrongful death claims, we are one of Northern Virginia’s premier law firms. Our team of trial attorneys can handle the complicated legal work while you focus on what is most important: honoring your loved one and spending time with your family.
Our wrongful death lawyers represent grieving families in wrongful death actions arising from fatal auto accidents and other tragic events, including:
We thoroughly investigate your claims to assemble persuasive evidence and consult with experts to strengthen your case. When you retain us to represent you, you send a sharp signal to the defendant’s insurance company that you will not accept a low settlement, but will go to court if necessary to get the compensation your family deserves.
Virginia code § 8.01-52 allows a jury (or a judge trying the case without a jury) to award wrongful death damages that are “fair and just.” These include:
While no amount of money will make up for the loss of a loved one, our professional management of your wrongful death action can help ease the emotional and financial pressure on you and your family during this difficult time.
However, you must act quickly. The statute of limitations for wrongful death in Virginia is two years from the date of your loved one’s death. If you do not file an action by then, you lose your right to recover any compensation. There is no upfront cost to hire our firm to manage your case. We accept personal injury and wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you will not owe us a penny for our services if we cannot secure compensation for you.
