Wrongful Death Damages and West Virginia Statute of Limitations

Wrongful death and survivor claims are often the only form of financial security available for family members going through a devastating loss. Using our resources can help recover the maximum compensation possible. Depending on the facts of your case, we may seek:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Funeral and Burial Costs
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Loss of Inheritance
  • General Damages
  • Punitive Damages
  • Loss of Anticipated Earnings of Your Loved One
  • Loss of Benefits; such as healthcare, Social Security, income, and pensions

Through the period of overwhelming loss and mourning, there is still a strict deadline for filing a wrongful death claim. In most cases, a family member may only have two years from the date of death. Otherwise, the right to compensation may be forfeited.
