Have you lost a loved in an accident that was not their fault? The state of North Carolina allows the bereaved in these instances to seek compensation from those responsible.

At Kornbluth Ginsberg Law Group, P.A., we understand the difficulties mourning families face in these circumstances and what can be done to ensure that their claim for compensation is clearly and assertively put forth.

It is possible to seek relief for you and your loved ones at this difficult time. Call our Durham wrongful death lawyers at (919) 336-1932 today.

Understanding Wrongful Death Claims in NC

In North Carolina, only the personal representative of the deceased's estate can bring a wrongful death suit to the court. This can be done on behalf of all potential beneficiaries, however (including the personal representative if they are a close family member).

Damages that can be sought in a wrongful death claim include:

  • Medical expenses incurred prior to the deceased's death
  • Burial and funeral expenses
  • Any pain and suffering the deceased experienced before death
  • Lost income that the deceased would have earned
  • Loss of protection, services, and care
  • Loss of companionship, comfort, guidance, etc.

The statute of limitations for wrongful death claims in North Carolina is two years. If you and your family believe you have a legitimate claim, our personal injury team is ready to hear from you. We're ready to hear your loved one's story, your family concerns, and help you seek the relief and recognition you deserve in the aftermath of your tragedy.
