Compassionate Legal Care During A Tragic Time (Wrongful Death)
Nobody should have to suffer through the loss of a loved one due to the carelessness and fault of another. Such a loss inflicts emotional wounds that last a lifetime. Additionally, it can leave the survivors with mounting financial concerns.
If you have lost a loved one due to another’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Though it will not lessen the impact of your loved one’s absence, it can help with the financial struggles that often accompany such a devastating loss.
At Crandall & Katt, Attorneys at Law, we are very sympathetic following the death of a loved one. We regularly handle wrongful death cases throughout Virginia. Our lawyers and staff understand the grief and pain you are experiencing. We offer compassionate, sensitive representation and help as we assist you through all the legal aspects of your loss.
Since 1979, we have provided caring representation for those who have lost loved ones due to negligence. Whether you need specific legal counsel on exploring your claims or you just need a shoulder to cry on, we are here for you. Our attorneys and staff genuinely care about each client’s well-being.
Preserving Your Claims
In the aftermath of a death, the last thing on your mind is preserving your legal claims. However, the law requires relatively swift action. To pursue a wrongful death suit, you must first be qualified as an administrator of your loved one’s estate, which will empower you to bring a lawsuit on his or her behalf. This is a separate process and a different legal standard from that involved in probate or estate administration.
We are experienced in handling all types of wrongful death cases. We can advise you on what types of damages may be available, including:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Lost income
- Punitive damages
