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, work accident, defective product, or even 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
- Emotional distress or pain and suffering
Our Reston and Northern Virginia 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.

At an early stage in the litigation, Hall & Sethi was able to obtain a mid six-figure settlement for the family of a teenager who passed away after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest during a school sporting event. The family claimed that the school’s athletic trainer was negligent in failing to timely utilize an AED (defibrillator) which would likely have saved the teenager’s life.
