The sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one can be overwhelming. If that loss happened due to the negligence of others, it can be devastating. Such a loss might be the result of an automobile accident, the negligence of a physician or hospital, the defective or dangerous characteristics of a product (including pharmaceuticals or food supplements), negligence or violations of civil rights by governmental authorities, or the result of many other types of tragic circumstances.
In Virginia, as in most states, statutes have been enacted which now allow surviving beneficiaries to seek justice through the courts by pursuit of what is referred to as a wrongful death action.
Often, insurance agents and representatives of insurance companies try to contact dependents or heirs of the victim in a wrongful death case. They will offer settlements that may appear reasonable at the time to those who are grief-stricken and emotionally unable to cope with long-term decisions. It is always to your benefit to consult with an experienced and competent Virginia lawyer who knows your rights and the compensation allowed under Virginia law before accepting any kind of settlement from an insurance company.
