A close relative was killed in a car crash. Am I entitled to compensation?

Close family members, such as a spouse or a parent of a minor child, may recover compensation for a victim who was killed in a collision in Virginia. You will need to prove that the car accident was caused by someone else’s negligence and that the negligence was the direct cause of the fatal injuries.

Wrongful death damages may include compensation for all medical bills that were incurred for treating car accident injuries prior to the death. Funeral costs and expenses may be covered, as well as the lost wages the deceased would have earned if his or her life had not been cut short. A wrongful death action may also provide compensation for lost companionship.
