When someone else’s negligence results in the death of a family member or loved one, you have the right to pursue justice and compensation by filing a wrongful death lawsuit. Wrongful death claims are separate from any criminal proceedings that make take place and work to provide surviving family members with compensation for economic and non-economic damages they have suffered. Wrongful death lawsuits can also be used to hold negligent parties accountable and ensure that similar incidents do not occur again in the future.
At Breit Cantor Grana Buckner, we have been helping victims of negligence and wrongdoing since 1979. Our Richmond wrongful death attorneys understand the immense suffering you and your family has been through. While no amount of financial compensation can undo this suffering, a wrongful death claim can provide you with a sense of justice and allow you the ability to begin the healing process.
Call (888) 635-9500 to discuss your situation with a member of our legal team. All initial consultations are always completely free and confidential.
