Virginia Beach Wrongful Death Lawyers

Providing Compassionate & Personalized Legal Representation

Breit Cantor Grana Buckner represents clients who have lost a family member or loved one due to another person, company, or entity’s negligence. Our Virginia Beach wrongful death attorneys understand that no amount of financial compensation can make up for the loss of your loved one; however, by bringing a wrongful death suit against the wrongdoer, you may be able to ease some of the financial burdens you are facing and achieve a sense of justice in holding negligent parties accountable.

Since 1979, we have been representing individuals throughout the state and country with all types of wrongful death cases, including those involving car and motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, and more. We have helped countless individuals navigate the legal system and have successfully recovered hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of our clients. Our award-winning attorneys are responsible for some of the largest verdicts and settlements in Virginia history.

If you believe that your loved one’s death was the result of negligence, call Breit Cantor today at (888) 635-9500 for a free, confidential consultation.

Who Can Bring a Wrongful Death Claim in Virginia?

In order to bring a wrongful death claim, you must show that the death was directly or indirectly caused by the negligent, intentional, or wrongful acts of another person or entity.

Only certain individuals may bring a wrongful death suit in Virginia. Generally speaking, anyone who is a “statutory beneficiary” of the deceased may bring a claim. In simple terms, a statutory beneficiary is anyone who was dependent on the deceased while he/she was living.

Individuals who may bring a wrongful death claim in Virginia include:

  • The surviving spouse of the deceased
  • Any surviving children
  • Surviving parents or siblings who were dependent on the deceased
  • Individuals who shared the same household as the deceased and were dependent on the deceased
  • Any surviving family member who will inherit a portion of the deceased’s estate or who is entitled to inherit

If you believe you have a wrongful death claim, reach out to Breit Cantor for a free consultation. We provide all of our services on a contingency fee basis, meaning there is no upfront cost for you and we only receive attorneys’ fees when we successfully secure compensation on your behalf.
