What You Can Expect from Your Fredericksburg Wrongful Death Lawyer
Your lawyer can help you with everything from providing peace of mind to getting the compensation you deserve. While you spend time with your family, the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC will:
Determine the Value of Your Claim
No amount of compensation can truly account for your loved one’s passing. However, we do everything possible to project an accurate monetary value for your losses. Your lawyer will research the outcomes of cases similar to yours, along with the facts of your situation, to learn what constitutes a fair settlement offer.
Speak With Medical Providers and Insurance Companies
Your lawyer will speak with medical professionals to determine what exactly caused your loved one’s death. They will also speak with other professionals to learn how the other party acted negligently.
Additionally, your lawyer will communicate with the other party’s insurance company on your behalf. This will allow you to focus solely on your family rather than having to deal with companies that do not have your best interests in mind during this difficult time.
Serve You on a Contingency-Fee Basis
While dealing with expensive end-of-life medical bills and funeral expenses, you may feel financially unequipped to partner with a lawyer. Thankfully, that shouldn’t be the case because the Parrish Law Firm, PLLC works on a contingency-fee basis. This arrangement allows anyone to afford a lawyer because:
- We don’t charge upfront payments.
- The word “retainer” is seldom uttered by our firm.
- We don’t charge by-the-service rates.
- You pay nothing until your case succeeds.
A portion of your settlement pays for our help, not your savings. You can learn more about our commitment to your case’s outcome (along with other details of our contingency-fee arrangements) during your free case review.
What Damages Can You Recover from a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Virginia?
Every wrongful death case comes with its own set of recoverable losses. Compensable damages in your case could comprise:
Prior to your loved one’s passing, they may have undergone medical treatment or needed to spend time in a hospital. All of these medical expenses should be paid by the negligent party––not you.
All funeral expenses should be covered in your claim or lawsuit. These could include:
- The cost of reserving a venue
- The casket/urn
- The burial plot
- Floral arrangements
- Anything related to the funeral service
- The headstone
Loss of Income
If your loved one worked and provided for your family, you can account for their lost income in your case. This includes not only current losses but also future losses.
Loss of Services
Compensation for lost services is different from the loss of income. This covers what your spouse did for you and your family in your everyday life. If they were the ones who took care of your property in a way that you are unable, or if they cared for a loved one who is unable to care properly for themselves, then you could be compensated.
Loss of Companionship
Losing a loved one is difficult, and our hearts go out to our clients who suffer such losses. The loss of companionship can hurt surviving family members’ way of life. For all the grief that you and your family experience as a result of the loss of your loved one, you can recover compensation.
If you or your family members need to seek mental health care following the loss of your loved one, the medical expenses should be covered in your case. This will ensure that you and your family are able to get the care you need to live healthy and happy lives.
