Fatal Crashes in North Carolina
A fatal car accident is one of the most heartbreaking and devastating experiences for a family. According to the North Carolina Department of Transportation, there were nearly 1,500 fatal car accidents in North Carolina in 2018. This number has remained relatively steady over the past several years despite the fact that the total number of crashes has increased sharply. Each year, there are hundreds of innocent victims who lose their lives due to crashes caused by negligent drivers.
If you have lost a loved one in a North Carolina car accident, you are no doubt dealing with a flurry of emotions from sadness to frustration. If your family member was killed due to the negligence of a third party, you may have a legal claim for wrongful death. A North Carolina wrongful death lawsuit must ordinarily be filed within two years of the date of death. The compensation that you could receive can help you deal with a sudden list of unexpected expenses, including funeral and medical bills and the loss of income. While we know that no amount of money can replace the loss of a family member, it is important to make sure that you do not face financial hardship due to a collision that was not your fault.
