Raleigh Wrongful Death

Personal injury accidents such as car crashes, workplace accidents and medical malpractice incidents in Raleigh, NC often have severe and fatal consequences. When a personal injury results in the death of another, surviving loved ones have a right to bring a lawsuit against those responsible and may be eligible to receive compensation for lost wages, medical and funeral expenses and damages for emotional suffering. If you have recently lost a loved one because of the negligent or deliberate intentions of another, our Raleigh personal injury lawyers can help you obtain justice.

Filing a Lawsuit

Nothing is more devastating than the untimely death of a loved one, especially if the death is the direct result of someone’s negligent actions. Whether the incident was intentional or not, anyone who has engaged in reckless behavior that results in the death of another may be held accountable for the incident and ordered to pay damages to the surviving dependents or heirs of the deceased.
