Alexandria Fatal Car Accident Attorney

Our Firm Handles Cases in Virginia, Maryland & Washington D.C.

Although car accidents occur quite often, some of them can result in the wrongful death of a loved one. Not only must the rest of the family grieve over the tragic loss, but they may also have to pay for all the expenses related to the collision, especially if the other party involved denies liability. It is important for the victim’s family to hire an experienced attorney to help them hold the negligent driver accountable.

At The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC, we can help you and your family recover your entitled financial compensation. While our legal team understands that no amount of money will ever bring back your loved one, but it will help you deal with all the financial repercussions associated with the tragedy.

Who Can File a Fatal Car Accident Claim in Virginia?

The deceased party’s family members (e.g. spouses, children, parents, and even siblings) may file a wrongful death claim. They have two years within the date of the car crash to file a claim against the negligent party since Virginia is a “fault” state.

Common damages of a wrongful death claim include:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical bills prior to death
  • Pain and suffering prior to death
  • Lost income
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Loss of consortium or care

In many cases, however, the at-fault party will deny liable and sometimes claim that the victim is partially responsible for the collision. Since Virginia is a follows a “contributory negligence” rule, if the victim shares any blame of causing the accident, the family cannot receive any damages. That is why having a skilled attorney on your side can ensure your rights and best interests are always protected.
