Our firm is experienced in handling wrongful death claims. A wrongful death claim arises when someone’s negligence or misconduct results in the death of another person. Family members of the deceased may be entitled to recover for the deceased’s lost income, medical bills prior to death and funeral bills. Heirs are also entitled to recover for the personal loss that they suffer because of their loved one’s untimely death. Under North Carolina law, the deceased person’s estate is authorized to bring the wrongful death claim. The estate is represented by the executor or administrator. Wrongful death cases may be very complex, and it is important that these cases be investigated immediately.
