What are wrongful death claims?

Wrongful death claims seek to bring families just compensation for the untimely death of one of their members. In so doing, they can discourage the companies and individuals responsible from ever endangering others in a similar way.

According to North Carolina state law concerning wrongful death, claims can include the following damages:
  • Medical bills incurred by the decedent (i.e., the person who died) before death
  • Pain and suffering experienced by the decedent prior to death
  • Funeral expenses
  • Lost income for the estimated remainder of the decedent’s natural life
  • Loss of companionship
  • Punitive damages, if the guilty party was willful and cruel in causing the accident
Wrongful deaths can result from any type of accident, including auto accidents, accidents involving dangerous products, and other devastating tragedies.
