By definition – wrongful death is a term that is used when someone dies as a result of another person’s actions. A wrongful death claim arises when the family of the deceased decides that they would like to pursue justice, and hold the responsible person (or company) accountable for their gross negligence.

Many people that have lost a loved one in an automobile, truck, motorcycle or boating accident that wasn’t the fault of the victim, are often unsure what to do after the incident has occurred. Lives are destroyed, and often family members are unsure if they are able to file a wrongful death claim against the responsible party.

At Lewis & Keller, our North Carolina wrongful death attorney team at our Winston-Salem location can help you deal with the stress of this difficult situation. We research your case and leave no stone unturned. We have an investigator on staff who will perform exhaustive research and analysis to learn the specific facts of your case.

Wrongful Death Compensation for Dependents of Deceased

In North Carolina, life expectancy tables are used to determine future losses. We also use these tables to calculate the loss of benefits and pensions which the victim would have received. A wrongful death attorney knows the law and can protect your rights.

You may also hear about Punitive Damages. In North Carolina, the defendant’s conduct must be egregious, intentional, or malicious. These damages are awarded to the victim’s family if the conduct of the defendant meets this definition. The skilled wrongful death lawyer at our firm has the knowledge and experience to help you decide whether to file a Punitive Damages claim or not.

As a parent, if your son or daughter is the victim of a fatal accident injury, you may be eligible to recover:

  • compensation for your loss
  • if you have adult children, you may also be eligible to recover the value of future financial contributions that their deceased child would have made to them.
  • Loss of companionship and other emotional damages
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of retirement, medical or other benefits
  • Funeral expenses and medical expenses prior to the death
  • Medical expenses incurred before death
  • Lost future income
  • General damages for the treatment and hospitalization of the person who died because of the injury they suffered which resulted in death

As a surviving child, you may be able to recover damages for:

  • mental anguish
  • loss of companionship caused by the death of their parent
  • the amount the parent would have contributed to the care of the child and the value of the services that the parent would have paid to raise, train, and educate the child.

An adult child may recover the amount that their parent might have contributed to them in their lifetime.

Personal injury law is complicated, and when you are grieving, it is difficult to make these decisions alone. It is a sound decision to find a competent and dependable law firm to help fight for your rights.

Lewis & Keller was prompt with communication and feedback. They kept the process moving that would have otherwise been impeded by the previous employer’s company they hired to handle claims. Lewis & Keller took the headache out of dealing with the workers compensation company my employer hired. The employer’s company was inefficient and tried to reimburse based on previous year’s rates and not current year. I never thought I would have an injury on the job that would affect me the rest of my life but glad to know there was someone there to work through the process.
