Fatal Car Accidents in North Carolina
There is nothing more devastating than the sudden loss of a family member in a traffic accident. Last year, more than 1,400 people were killed in traffic crashes in North Carolina. The pain and anguish are even greater when your loved one was killed in an accident that was not their fault. Many accidents are caused by the negligence of other motorists and are preventable. Unfortunately, these accidents can claim the lives of innocent victims or result in serious injuries.
When you have lost a loved one in a North Carolina car accident, you are likely feeling very overwhelmed, especially just after the accident takes place. During this time, every day may seem like a whirlwind of new activity and strong emotions as you try to move forward following a sudden tragedy. The last thing that you should have to concern yourself with is trying to make a legal case to recover the compensation that you need and deserve.
Following the crash, you should reach out to a skilled and trusted North Carolina wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible. Your attorney can help guide you through the steps that need to be taken in order to help secure your recovery and your future. Under North Carolina law, wrongful death actions must be filed within two years of the date of death and can include payment for funeral and medical costs, loss of companionship, punitive damages, and more. Only an attorney who is experienced with these types of cases can truly ensure that your legal rights are protected.
