In Winchester, Maryland (MD) a woman was driving her mini-van down Jubal Early Road between Valley Avenue and Plaza in Winchester when a truck crashed head-on into her. The pick up truck crossed the median and killed the driver’s side of the van. Two children who were also in the car at the time of the accident were injured. Tragically the driver of the mini van was killed.
The Virginia Injury Lawyer’s Perspective:
What a tragic and terrifying event for the two small children who were in the car at the time of the accident. The report didn’t say if she was the mother of the children but it may very well be possible. As experienced Virginia wrongful death attorneys we are often asked about what damages the family of the woman who died from injuries in the car accident can claim? As the beneficiaries of a wrongful death award in a civil lawsuit, the deceased victim's survivors can receive monetary damages for sorrow; mental anguish; loss of solace (e.g., companionship, comfort, guidance, advice); lost income, services, protection, care and assistance.
