Causes of Wrongful Death
When negligence or carelessness leads to a fatality, the resulting death may be considered wrongful. Negligent actions of a company, corporation or an individual may be the grounds for a wrongful death case.
Common causes of wrongful death claims include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Construction accidents
- Work accidents
- Medical malpractice
As a spouse or dependent of the deceased, you are probably eligible to file for wrongful death compensation. An individualized consultation with our lawyers is necessary to discuss the factors unique to your case and to ensure that you are an eligible party. If the deceased was young, or had no spouse or children, then parents or other people may be entitled to pursue compensation. Our case evaluations are free and we do not charge attorney’s fees unless we successfully recover compensation on your behalf.
What You May Be Entitled to for the Death of a Loved One
In a wrongful death case, we can pursue compensation for damages such as:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral and end-of-life expenses
- Loss of loved one’s earnings
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of loved one’s inheritance
- Loss of loved one’s benefits
- Pain and suffering
Workers’ compensation death benefits may be available to you if your loved one’s death was caused by an accident at work. Our lawyers are extensively experienced and knowledgeable in North Carolina workers’ compensation law, and we can make sure you get the full amount of benefits you are due.

You can focus on healing and moving on without the added strife caused by your loved one’s lost financial contributions and the bills you have as a result of the wrongful death.
