Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is hard.  When it's due to the conduct of another, it can be even tougher.  

A wrongful death occurs when there is a death and it is due to the negligence, reckless conduct, and/or wrongful act of another.  In North Carolina, unlike other causes of action, the statue of limitations to bring a wrongful death claim is two (2) years from the date of death.  Of course, no wrongful death action can bring back a loved one, however, a wrongful death claim can help provide relief for medical bills, funeral expenses, lost wages, and can help deter the kind of conduct that resulted in your loved one's death. 

Examples of situations from which wrongful deaths can occur

Drunk Driver Cases, Vehicular Manslaughter, Workplace Conduct/Accidents, Industrial Accidents, Construction Site Accidents, Slip and Fall Cases, Drowning Cases, Medical Malpractice, Long-term Care Facility and Nursing Home Abuse
