When you lose a loved one without notice

It's not easy to lose a loved one no matter how it happens. When the loss of someone close to you comes without notice, however -- and when you expected to spend the rest of your life with that person by your side -- the loss can be devastating beyond words. Many Virginia residents never fully recover emotionally from such a loss.

Aside from the emotional aspects of losing a loved one in an unexpected accident, however, there can be massive financial repercussions associated with a death in the family. If a family loses its father -- who was the primary income earner -- the family may face serious financial difficulties after losing the father's financial support. Those financial losses will be felt immediately after the father's paycheck disappears. They'll also be felt when it comes time to pay for funeral and memorial expenses.

When a death was caused by another party's negligence or unlawful behavior, close family members of the deceased may have the ability to pursue wrongful death claims in Virginia civil court. The pursuit of these claims -- if successfully navigated -- can serve to bring family members money as compensation for lost future income, end of life expenses, lost family relationship, loss of consortium, lost family services, lost future inheritance and more, depending on the facts pertaining to the case.

At the Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, we help families who lost their loved ones in fatal accidents. Although no amount of money -- and no amount of litigation -- can ever reverse the wrong of a wrongful death, pursuing such an action can help families reach a sense of closure regarding the matter. If the lawsuit results in a favorable settlement or award, it could also bring families much needed financial support at time when they need it most.
