Free Wrongful Death Info Sheet

Wrongful Death

Death is an unfortunate part of life. But when one person’s intentional act or negligent actions result in the death of another, a wrongful death has occurred. That might be a car accident, nursing home abuse, a defective product, medical malpractice, or other reasons.

In North Carolina, wrongful death lawsuits are allowed in order for you to obtain compensation for the death of a loved one if that death is caused by someone else. The compensation you receive can pay for medical bills, funeral costs, and other expenses following your loved one’s death. 

How Wrongful Death Cases Work
Wrongful death suits are usually taken on a contingency basis. That means the lawyer will take the case for a percent of the damages awarded.

However, before a lawyer takes a wrongful death case, he or she will determine whether the defendant either has liability insurance or sufficient assets with which the defendant can pay any damages.
