Wrongful Death Attorneys in Newport News, VA
Experienced trial lawyer for traumatic injuries in Virginia
When a person is killed, or suffers traumatic brain or spinal damage, the loss is forever. Though no amount of monetary compensation can ever undo the damage or fill the void created, justice requires a substantial payment to ease any burdens brought on by the injury. The Law Offices of Timothy H. Hankins understands the hardships injured parties and their families face. We bring more than 30 years of experience in traumatic injury litigation to every case we try. We're prepared to fight for full compensation for your loss, in cases related to:
Pursuing additional damages for permanent loss
Standard personal injury claims include payment of medical bills — past and future — related to the injury, reimbursement for lost wages, also past and future, as well as amounts to compensate for the victim's pain and suffering. When the injury is anticipated to be permanent, as in the case of brain or spinal trauma, compensatory damages must be calculated based on the injured person's likely life span. If there is a probability that the accident has cut years off the victim's life, additional compensation is in order. In the case of wrongful death, next of kin can recover compensation for the victim's lost income over a lifetime of earning. The spouse of the deceased can obtain compensation for the loss of companionship, and children for loss of parental guidance. As a full-service personal injury law firm serving Hampton, Norfolk, Williamsburg and Yorktown, VA, we've managed many cases that involved catastrophic losses to individuals and families. We are committed to ensuring that you receive the maximum amount to which you are entitled.
Justice for wrongful death and traumatic injuries in Virginia
When a person acts deliberately, or with disregard for human life, to injure another, that person can be charged criminally and is subject to prison if convicted. That person can also be sued in civil court for any losses his actions caused. A criminal conviction guarantees a win in civil court, but even if the perpetrator is found not guilty, he can still be found liable in civil court and be forced to pay damages. Your only chance for justice is in civil court, with a strong Virginia wrongful death attorney who can make the case for your recovery.
