Wrongful Death


Steve Cannella and all of his associates were so wonderful in representing my family after my parents were hit by a car back in 2010. My mother was tragically killed in the accident and my father suffered severe injuries. 

It was a difficult case due to the Virginia Law regarding contributory negligence. The tenacity and dedication of Steve and his firm facilitated a settlement that was beyond anything we had hoped for. Althought a life cannot have a monetary value, my father is no longer struggling to pay his medical bills and has a sense of retribution. 

There is only one word to describe how Cannella and O’Neal handled my case … that word is “PERFECT.” From the very start Mr. Cannella jumped right into a very difficult case and kept me informed each and every step of the way. Even the defense attorney said that they did not expect to have to pay , but they did . The cases involving my serious injury and my wife’s tragic death resolved in mediation just before trial. In the end the amount that me and my family got was a lot more than I ever expected.

My father was killed in a horrible car accident by a reckless driver, leaving behind a wife, three daughters and seven grandchildren. The timely response by this law firm was crucial.
