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. 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 attorneys can represent you whether you reside in the Charlotte area or anywhere else in North Carolina.

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 that 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.
