Families in North Carolina that have lost a loved one in an accident are often left with many financial hardships. During this time of emotion and grief, families may not know how to get back on their feet. At our law firm, we help families that have experienced such a tragedy to recover compensation for both economic and non-economic damages that were caused by their loved one’s death.
Our team of attorneys works with families to file wrongful death actions after car crashes, workplace accidents, medical malpractice incidents and other fatal events. If you have lost a loved one in an accident that was caused by another party’s negligence, we may be able to help you. We are also prepared to help families obtain workers’ compensation death benefits regardless of who was at fault for a fatal workplace accident.
After someone dies because of another party’s actions, the decedent’s estate is entitled to bring a claim on behalf of the surviving family members and other beneficiaries. Because the accident victim is no longer alive, the beneficiaries are entitled to receive the award from a wrongful death claim. The estate will typically pursue compensation for the decedent’s pain and suffering, end-of-life medical care costs and funeral expenses. Our attorneys have also helped many families to seek reimbursement for income that their loved one would have earned if they had lived as well as compensation for their own loss of companionship.
When we handle a wrongful death action, our attorneys work tirelessly to recover compensation for the full extent of the family’s loss. To learn more about the services that we provide in this regard, you are invited to visit our wrongful death lawsuit page.
