At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, our legal team works hard to help injured victims and their loved ones get compensation after accidents. But what happens when those accidents result in someone’s death?
The surviving family members of a person who died in a preventable, fatal accident that was caused by another person’s or party’s negligence can file a wrongful death claim to recover compensation for things like medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship. There are many types of accidents and mistakes that can result in valid wrongful death claims, including:
- Car accidents—When drivers break the law, whether it’s by speeding, texting while driving, or driving under the influence, they put others in danger. And when their negligence causes a fatal crash, they should be held liable.
- Medical malpractice—Doctors, surgeons, anesthesiologists, and other healthcare providers are responsible for ensuring their patients are safe and avoid complications. When they fail to do so, they can be considered accountable for injuries, illnesses, and even deaths.
- Nursing home abuse—Nursing home residents are among the most vulnerable members of society. Many are at risk of deadly falls or sudden downturns in their health that can turn fatal. It’s up to nursing home staff members to provide the care, medical treatment, and supervision necessary to reduce their risks.
These are just a few examples of the types of situations that can result in wrongful death claims. If you lost a loved one and you believe it was due to someone else’s carelessness or mistake, you may be eligible for compensation.

At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we’re here to help people who are suffering after the negligence of others causes serious accidents and injuries. Although most of our work involves directly helping victims, sometimes accidents are serious enough to be fatal. And when that happens, our attention turns to helping the surviving loved ones via wrongful death claims.
Just as injured victims can file compensation claims after auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, and other types of accidents, the surviving family members of people who died due to other people’s and parties’ negligence can also file compensation claims. People who file wrongful death claims may be eligible to receive a variety of compensation, including money for medical bills, lost wages, lost consortium, funeral expenses, and more.
Wrongful death claims are often complex, and more than one party may be at fault depending on the cause of death. That’s why it’s important for surviving family members to get an experienced Norfolk wrongful death lawyer on their side as soon as possible. Wrongful death claims require plenty of evidence, and evidence can quickly disappear in a matter of weeks or even days.
If you lost a loved one in an accident that wasn’t their fault, you shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket for any incurred expenses or deal with lost income for years to come. We believe that you should be fairly compensated for what you’ve gone through, and we’re here to help. Contact us today for a free consultation.

If your loved one died because of another person’s or party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, we fight for the rights of people who were hurt in auto accidents, motorcycle accidents, and other types of accidents through no fault of their own. It’s our goal to help them get maximum compensation for their accident-related expenses, including their medical bills and lost wages.
We do the same for surviving family members when their loved ones die in preventable accidents or due to negligence-related injuries. The expenses associated with the death of a loved one can be overwhelming, especially if the decedent was the primary income earner for the household. In addition, families may also have to pay for expensive medical procedures and funeral costs. When those costs are combined, they may be too much for a single family to bear.
We believe that surviving family members shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket when another party’s negligence results in the death of their loved one. However, we also know that wrongful death claims are often legally complex and require a thorough understanding of Virginia’s laws and ample evidence.

Personal injury claims can help victims and their families get compensation after someone else’s negligence causes them to suffer serious illnesses or injuries. When negligence leads to fatal illnesses or injuries, victims’ families can file wrongful death claims to be compensated for their medical bills, lost wages, and loss of companionship, support, and love.
However, wrongful death claims are often treated differently than personal injury claims by insurance companies. Because the settlements are often bigger, insurance companies may push back harder against victims’ families when they pursue compensation. In addition, the deaths of victims can make it more difficult for their families to prove what happened, especially if there were few witnesses.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, our Norfolk wrongful death attorneys know how to investigate wrongful death claims to maximize the chances of getting compensation for grieving families. We do that by collecting evidence that proves another party’s negligence caused the fatal illness or injury, and then we calculate how much the family deserves for their loss. When our law firm represent you, we’ll negotiate with the insurance company to make sure your claim gets a fair look and a fair outcome from their adjusters.
Dealing with the loss of a loved one can be a difficult time for families, especially when it puts them in a financial bind. We know what you’re going through, and we want to help. Call us today for a free consultation.

The grief and pain of losing a loved one are difficult to deal with, especially if their passing means that you and your family will be without the emotional, familial, and financial support that they provided. But if your loved one died as a result of another person’s or party’s negligence, you may be able to file a claim for compensation. However, doing so can be difficult without an experienced legal team on your side.
At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, a Norfolk wrongful death lawyer from our firm can help if you feel like you have nowhere else to turn after the loss of a loved one. Facing a future without your loved one can be frightening, but getting compensation for his or her death can help you begin building a future for yourself and your other family members.
Having a lawyer on your side can make a big difference when it comes to pursuing compensation for the following reasons:
- A lawyer can prove your loved one’s death was preventable—There are many factors that go into fatal accidents, injuries, or incidents, and it’s not always easy to determine who was at fault or whether deaths were preventable. Our legal team knows the ins and outs of wrongful death claims, and we know what evidence to look for and present to leave no doubt in the insurance company’s mind.
- A lawyer can help you get maximum compensation—Even if you’re able to prove that your loved one’s death was caused by negligence, the insurance company may offer only a small settlement—if anything at all. After we’ve established your loss was due to negligence, we’ll fight to maximize your chances of getting the full amount you deserve for things like lost income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.

If your loved one’s death could have been prevented, you deserve answers—and compensation if their death was caused by negligence. At Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers, it’s our goal to help you get the damages your family deserves during this difficult time.
A Norfolk wrongful death lawyer can speak to you after your loved one’s death if you believe it was caused by another person’s or party’s negligence.

- Truck accidents – Truck drivers, companies, and owners are responsible for following strict safety guidelines at all times.
- Medical malpractice – Healthcare professionals take oaths to “do no harm,” but their carelessness and negligence can cost patients their lives.

Losing a loved one is devastating. Every member of a family, regardless of age or relationship, can be deeply affected by the death of someone they’re close to, and the loss they’re grieving can be even more intense and painful if the death was due to someone else’s negligence.
In addition to the emotional challenges, surviving family members also often face financial challenges, especially if the deceased was the primary income-earner.
When a family files a wrongful death lawsuit against the person or party who may have been responsible for the death, the following people may be entitled to damages:
- Spouses – In addition to receiving compensation for lost income, a surviving spouse can also file a claim and receive damages due to lost companionship and for the pain and suffering they experienced after their loved one’s death.
- Children – Children who are under the age of 18 can receive compensation for the loss of a parent, as they have been deprived of comfort and support that they need during their formative years.
- Parents – Losing a child is one of the hardest things any parent will face in life, and they can file claims for compensation for the emotional trauma they experienced and the loss of their relationship with their child.
These parties also may be eligible to receive additional compensation via punitive damages if the person or party responsible for their loved one’s death acted recklessly.
The Norfolk wrongful death attorneys at Lowell Stanley Injury Lawyers know how important your loved one was to you and your family, and we want to help you get the closure you deserve. Contact us for a free consultation.
