What Types of Compensation Can I Pursue After Losing a Loved One in a North Carolina Car Accident?

If you have lost a loved one to the negligent actions or inaction of another person, multiple parties, or a company or organization, you may be entitled to pursue a wrongful death claim.

The personal representative of the deceased person’s estate is the only person who is eligible to file a wrongful death claim in North Carolina. This individual is often outlined in the will.

Without a will, the court will appoint a representative, which is often the spouse, parents, or adult children of the deceased.

Wrongful death claims allow eligible family members to pursue financial compensation for:

  • Medical expenses resulting from the injury or illness that caused their death
  • Pain and suffering he or she experienced before their death
  • Reasonable funeral and burial expenses
  • Loss of the deceased person’s income
  • Loss of the deceased person’s protection, services, care, and assistance
  • Loss of companionship, guidance, comfort, and advice

If you have lost a loved one to negligence in North Carolina, contact our compassionate wrongful death attorneys in Charlotte today to discuss your full financial recovery needs.
