How Virginia Wrongful Death Law May Compensate You for Emotional Loss

Comments (0)

Our Warren County wrongful death lawyers know the truth. We know that there is no way to compensate you for the emotional loss you suffered with the death of your spouse, parent, or child. We know that any legal compensation is going to be inadequate. Yet, we also believe that, while imperfect, financial compensation is the only means of compensation that can be offered to you.

What the Financial Compensation May Be for Your Emotional Damages

In determining what your financial compensation for emotional damages should be, your lawyer will encourage the insurance company to consider the following in a settlement:

  • Your grief, anguish, and sorrow.
  • Loss of companionship or relationship.

Various types of evidence will be collected by your lawyer to determine the appropriate amounts for these losses. Your loved one’s emotional suffering prior to death may be considered separately. Additionally, emotional damages are only part of your possible recovery. Other damages, including, but not limited to, lost income, unpaid bills, and punitive damages may also be possible.

If a fair settlement cannot be reached, then your Virginia wrongful death lawyer will zealously advocate for your full recovery of emotional damages in court.
