Charlotte Attorneys Helping Families In Wrongful Death Suits

There is nothing more tragic than losing a loved one, and it is even worse when it happens unexpectedly due to the negligence of another person or entity. When the death of a person is caused by the negligence of another, it is called a wrongful death.

The laws in North Carolina allow family members to be compensated for their loss in multiple ways and those causing your loss should be held responsible. A few forms of compensation are payment of funeral expenses, loss of earnings by the decedent, payment of medical expenses, pain and suffering, and for certain family members, loss of consortium. At Randall & Stump, PLLC, our personal injury attorneys handle wrongful death cases in the Charlotte area and throughout North Carolina.

Contact us today online or by telephone at 704-286-6942 or toll free at 800-565-1435 to set up a free initial consultation to discuss your wrongful death claim.

How Do These Lawsuits Work In North Carolina?

In North Carolina, the law allows the deceased individual's estate to file a lawsuit for wrongful death. While we certainly understand the family needs time to grieve over its loss, it may be necessary to take action during this time in order to prevent a tolling of the one-year statute of limitations to bring a wrongful death claim.

Also, it is important to act before evidence may be lost or discarded, witnesses become unavailable, and to allow a thorough independent investigation of the circumstances around your tragic loss. If action is not taken prior to the applicable statute of limitations, the decedent's estate will be barred forever from filing a lawsuit for wrongful death.

We have the knowledge and experience to evaluate your case to determine the likelihood of your recovery.
