Wrongful Death Law In North Carolina
If your loved one’s death resulted from the negligence of another person or company, you may have grounds to file a wrongful death claim. You can pursue compensation for:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Your loved one’s medical bills
- Loss of their financial support
- Loss of their emotional support, care and companionship
- The pain and suffering they endured
To file a claim, you must be the personal representative of your loved one’s estate. I can help you with that and all other aspects of your case.
How Long Do You Have To File A Case?
The deadline – called statute of limitations – for filing a lawsuit is two years after your loved one’s death. The sooner you get started, however, the more time your attorney will have to build a strong case.
