Shapiro & Appleton

My wife died in a car accident in Virginia. Am I entitled to bring a wrongful death claim against the driver who caused the accident?

Yes. This strikes at the very core of a wrongful death claim. If the other driver was negligent in causing in causing the accident, then the personal representative of the person who died may bring a wrongful death suit against the driver who caused the accident. In a successful case, the money awarded will go to the beneficiaries, which includes you as the husband.
