Fatal car accidents and pursuing wrongful death damages

There is no way to measure the impact that an unexpected death has on a family. That’s because, when a loved one disappears from our lives permanently, we have no idea what we’re missing — just a fuzzy dream of what life could have been like if our dear one had been able to stay in our lives.

At The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman, we have represented numerous individuals in wrongful death actions after their loved ones were taken from them prematurely. In all of the wrongful death case examples we can name, there is one fact that’s always true: There’s no way that any amount of civil litigation or financial compensation can serve to fill the giant rift that’s left when we lose someone close to us.

At best, Virginia civil courts can award financial compensation to the close family members of someone killed due to another person’s negligence. This compensation, paid by the negligent party who was at fault for the individual’s death, without fail will never be sufficient to make a hurting person whole after such a loss. However, it’s the only way our society has of bringing some sense of justice.

On that note, family members who lose a loved one do suffer quantifiable and real monetary damages. The loss of money after a primary contributor to family income dies is significant, and it can leave a grieving family in financial ruin. Then there are the more nebulous categories of damages related to the emotional pain and suffering caused by the loss of companionship and the loss of family relationship. These damages may also be compensable in a successfully navigated wrongful death suit.

If you lost a family member in a fatal car accident, The Law Offices of Locklin & Coleman is here to help. We will listen to your story and advise you of your legal rights and whether you may be able to pursue wrongful death damages in Virginia civil court.
