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.

What Our Clients

Have Said...

Oliver and Sherrie M. – Car Accident

“We were hit head-on by someone who run a red light. I got bruised up real bad inside and I had just had shoulder surgery and it inflamed that. My wife was hurt the worst. It disfigured her right arm. We were referred to Mr. West through our son-in-law so we went up and set an appointment with him. We went in and met him for the first time and he is a very nice gentleman to say the least. He took over the case and found out who the [driver] was. It had totaled the car and I had just gotten it paid off. They didn’t even get hurt. Mr. West took the case and went way out of his way to help. The lady who hit us … they had only the cheapest insurance to get the car on the road … so he helped us get more money to help us pay the bills. We are very happy with how it turned out. Kelly and West, they’re good people. You can talk to them and they’re down home people.”
