What are the types of harms and damages that can be recovered in a Virginia wrongful death case against a negligent party or company?

Virginia, like most states allows recovery for the survivors’ sorrow, mental anguish, loss of solace, comfort, the advice of the decedent, reasonably expected loss of income that the decedent would supply beneficiaries.  In addition, Virginia allows for reasonably expected loss of services, protection, care and assistance as well as recovery of expense for the care, treatment or hospitalization of the deceased loved one resulting from the injury that caused death.  Last, funeral expenses are recoverable.
