Wrongful Death

Wrongful death cases are personal injury cases where the injury is the death of a family member as a result of another person’s actions. A wrongful death can result from many different things, such as:

  • Auto Accidents

  • Trucking Accidents

  • Motorcycle and Bicycle Accidents

  • Nursing Home Neglect/Abuse

  • Dangerous Drugs

  • Fire and Explosions

  • Medical Malpractice


Since the person who dies cannot file a wrongful death claim, the surviving family members must be the ones to file the claim for them.

A wrongful death claim is different from a criminal action because the wrongful death claim compensates the surviving family members for losses that they have or will endure as a result of the death. The losses that the surviving family members may recover include:

  • Medical Expenses

  • Funeral Expenses

  • Loss of Anticipated Job Earnings

  • Punitive Damages

  • Loss of Benefits

  • Mental Anguish

  • Loss of Inheritance

  • Loss of Companionship

Contact a lawyer before it is too late!

Although a wrongful death claim is a heartbreaking thing, it is important to act quickly if you are filing a wrongful death claim. In North Carolina, there is a two-year statute of limitations on wrongful death claims. In other words, a wrongful death lawsuit must be initiated within two years of the date of death.
