Wrongful Death Is Devastating

No civil or criminal penalty can bring back your loved one and no amount of money can replace them. Still, taking legal action against the negligent party could help you move forward in life, as well as prevent future fatal accidents. Obtaining financial compensation is one way to hold the offender accountable and offset the financial burden caused by your relative's death. North Carolina courts identify multiple damages for which the deceased's family may seek compensation. Those damages include:

  • Medical bills
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of inheritance
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of companionship and consortium

If you are facing any of these issues after a wrongful death, we are prepared to fight for you.
