Dealing with a wrongful death lawsuit brings mixed emotions

When you lose someone you love in an accident, the grief you experience is not going to go away quickly. For many people, the grief is overwhelming, especially when your loved one was lost because of another person’s negligence, recklessness or intentional act.

Filing a wrongful death lawsuit can bring myriad emotions to the surface. You may simply want to grieve without worrying about court appearances or even having to see the person responsible for your loved one’s death.

At The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, PLLC, we understand how difficult this time is and we will help you with all aspects of this necessary action. We know you want to see the party responsible for your loved one’s death held accountable.

Wrongful death lawsuits may be brought because of a loved one’s death in a number of ways. For example, car accidents, premises liability accidents, workplace accidents and nursing home neglect and abuse may all result in someone’s wrongful death.

There are time limits for bringing such lawsuits. In Virginia, the Wrongful Death Act is very specific about how this type of case must be put together and filed. In addition, over time, evidence can fade, which means it can be more difficult to prove what happened. An experienced attorney can help you prepare a wrongful death case before the statute of limitation expires.

If you want to learn more about wrongful death lawsuits, please take a few moments to review our webpage on the topic. We will handle the legalities of your case while you and your family work on moving forward with your lives.
