Virginia Wrongful Death Lawsuit Set To Go To Trial

July 29, 2013

The Virginia Wrongful Death Lawsuit filed on behalf of a University of Virginia Lacrosse player allegedly murdered by her estranged boyfriend will go to trial. Court documents indicated the hearing will begin September 29, 2014, and last approximately two weeks.

According to NBC 29 News, the suit stems from an incident that occurred in May 2010 at the victim’s apartment, located on 14th Street in Charlottesville, Virginia. Police believe the accused kicked in the door of the apartment, got into an argument with the victim, and killed her by striking her head against the wall.

The victim’s family filed the suit, claiming the accused’s negligent behavior that evening was the direct and proximate cause of the victim’s death. So far, the man charged in connection to the murder has denied any wrongdoing in the matter and has evoked his Fifth Amendment right not to speak in the matter.

The victim’s family is seeking more than $30 million in the suit.

One of the most important aspects of a wrongful death case is proving negligence on the part of the responsible party; however this can be an extremely complex process.

That is why the Norfolk Personal Injury Lawyers with Lowell “The Hammer” Stanley hope a decision in the case will bring a sense of closure to the tragedy for the family of the victim.
