Norfolk Wrongful Death Attorney

Representing Surviving Families in Norfolk, Newport News & Roanoke

Wrongful death lawsuits allege that the death of a loved one occurred as a direct result of someone's negligence or other wrongful conduct. This form of litigation aims to hold the defendant accountable for the victim's death. The victim's family members or beneficiaries may be entitled to financial compensation as a result of the defendant's negligence or other misconduct.

Although monetary compensation can't erase the pain and injustice caused by the death of your loved one, it can help the family cover the costs associated with death and provide for the future. At Kalfus & Nachman PC, we understand the pain grieving families feel, and we are willing and able to take action against negligent parties who caused a loved one's death.
