Caring Virginia Law Firm Handles Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Dedicated attorney represents grieving families in the Alexandria area

The unexpected loss of a family member is even more tragic when their death is caused by someone else’s careless, negligent or deliberately malicious behavior. At Michael J. Sgarlat Attorney at Law, I aim to ease the devastation suffered by victims’ loved ones. Through skilled legal representation, I help families in Virginia seek fair compensation for their losses. During settlement negotiations and at trial, I provide loyal advocacy in respect of the deceased’s memory. My goal is to help you achieve peace of mind and a sense of security for the future while pursuing justice for your lost loved one.

Respectful Virginia lawyer provides compassionate assistance after fatal accidents

I treat each case with the attention, sensitivity and professionalism it deserves. I will advise you on your options and review all of the relevant details before deciding on the right legal approach.

You may have a valid basis for a wrongful death lawsuit if your loved one’s death was a direct result of another person’s or organization’s negligent or intentional actions. I help clients who have lost loved ones due to:

  • Auto accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Defective products
  • Lack of proper security
  • Mesothelioma
  • Medical malpractice
  • Birth injuries
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Slips and falls
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Assault
  • Murder
  • Aviation accidents

My thorough understanding of Virginia wrongful death laws enables me to skillfully handle all legal aspects of your case and to seek the remedy you deserve.

Dedicated attorney seeks compensation for surviving loved ones

Though no amount of money can ever replace your missing family member, obtaining compensation from at-fault parties can help to safeguard your loved one’s legacy and your family’s financial health. My firm does everything possible to reach a fair settlement or verdict to cover the costs of:

  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance
  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings

I stay with you from the beginning of your claim until its ultimate resolution — whether that is at the negotiation table, in court or before an appellate judge. My firm may employ private investigators and/or expert witnesses to help make your case as strong as possible. I may also collect and preserve evidence from the accident scene and obtain testimony from people with first-person knowledge of your loved one’s passing.
