We advise families in Virginia about their legal options

We serve the needs of clients in accident claims and wrongful death lawsuits throughout Northern Virginia. We understand the laws and procedures present for surviving families and the deceased’s estate.

Virginia does not allow a wrongful death plaintiff to recover damages for the victim’s conscious pain and suffering in a fatal truck or car accident. Virginia plaintiffs are entitled instead to compensation for the loss of solace that the death in the family represents.

No family looks forward to the task of proving damages in the detail required by each jurisdiction’s wrongful death statute. At MacDowell Law Group, P.C., our goal is to provide the greatest degree of financial security possible for your family, while protecting you from the burdens of litigation in a time of crisis. At the same time, we make ourselves fully available to serve your needs as they may develop and change over time.

Whether your claim results from a truck accident, a motorcycle accident or a collision in an unmarked crosswalk, our trial experience and skill with the proof of disputed facts can help your family. To learn more about our ability to serve your family’s legal and personal needs, contact an attorney at MacDowell Law Group, P.C. in Fairfax.

I would highly recommend Mr. Richard MacDowell.

I worked with the MacDowell Law Group team in Fairfax, Virginia both times I was in a car accident. From the very beginning, the service provided was the very best. They are second to none!
