Do I Have a Case?

You may be wondering if you have a case for a wrongful death claim. We have provided the answers to a few basic questions in order to empower you with the knowledge you need to make the best decision for you.

According to North Carolina law, wrongful death is defined as any death that was caused “by a wrongful act, neglect or default of another.” This means that had the deceased individual survived the accident, they would’ve been able to seek damages through a personal injury claim. If you are unsure whether your case qualifies as wrongful death, contact us for a review of your case at absolutely no cost.

North Carolina’s statute of limitations allows an individual two years from the date of death to file their claim. If you wait too long, you may miss your chance to receive any compensation, so call today and get started.

In some states, any family member can file a wrongful death claim. However, in North Carolina, only the personal representative or executor of the estate may do so. We are always available to talk over the phone and help you determine whether you can file or not.

What Damages Are Awarded for Wrongful Death?

Some of the compensable damages available in a wrongful death lawsuit include:

  • Medical expenses for any treatment your loved one received before their passing
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Punitive damages if the responsible party’s actions were egregious, intentional, or malicious
  • Pain and suffering for emotional damages or mental illness caused by the loved one’s death

There is also compensation available to account for income, benefits, protection, and even companionship that the decedent would have been able to provide, usually to their dependents or parents, had they survived the accident.

How Can Lewis & Keller Help My Case?

Pursuing a wrongful death claim is, more often than not, a complex and precarious legal process with many opportunities for error. On top of this, though it may seem too heartless to be true, many insurance companies have little to no concern for what you have been through. Oftentimes their primary goal is to pay out as little as possible, if anything, just to save a buck. They may use questionable tactics such as convincing you that what they are offering is the most you’ll receive or suggesting that your loved one was responsible for their death.

We pride ourselves on the care and attention to detail that we give to these very delicate cases. Our extensive knowledge of North Carolina wrongful death law allows us to build your strongest case and go up against the insurance companies to bring you the maximum settlement. You deserve a champion in your corner, and that is exactly what we will be. Let us fight for you so that you have time to grieve and heal.
