Fighting For Your Rights

Advocating For Your Rights During This Difficult Time

When a loved one dies as a result of another person’s negligence, the victim’s family may file a wrongful death lawsuit. Dealing with a family member’s death is devastating enough on its own – when the circumstances are caused by another person, it can be overwhelming.

The Virginia and DC wrongful death lawyers at Sethi & Sledd, PLLC offer helpful counsel for you and your family during this difficult time. Our more than 30 years of combined experience means that we are familiar with the complex nature of a wrongful death case and stand ready to assist you.

Compensation For Wrongful Death

In filing a wrongful death case, it is important to establish the negligence that caused the death of your loved one. This may come from a car accident, dangerous premises, defective product or medical malpractice. Surviving family members may be eligible to file a lawsuit to hold the negligent individual or entity responsible.

A family member can file a claim for the following damages:

  • Medical bills incurred from injuries prior to death
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of the deceased person’s income and other benefits
  • Value of services the deceased person would have provided
  • Loss of care, guidance and nurturing from the deceased
  • Loss of love and companionship
  • Sorrow and mental anguish

Our Virginia and DC wrongful death attorneys are committed to recovering the highest possible compensation for you and your family. We understand that no amount of money can replace the loss of a loved one, but our goal is to provide this small reprieve as you and your family deal with the more important matters.
