Charlotte Wrongful Death Attorney
Wrongful Death Lawyer in Charlotte, NC
If you have lost a family member due to a fatal accident, not only have you lost the companionship and affection of a loved one, but you’ve also lost the value of their services and financial support. While your loved one cannot be replaced, a wrongful death lawsuit is the legal tool used to provide financial compensation to surviving family members. In North Carolina, wrongful death lawsuits must be filed within two years of the date of death. If the fatal accident was caused by another person’s carelessness or recklessness, then a wrongful death lawsuit may be brought after the death of a parent, a spouse, a child — or even an unborn child. A wrongful death lawyer in Charlotte, NC can help you seek the justice you deserve.

What Compensation is Available from a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
As difficult as it may be to consider, a wrongful death lawsuit places a monetary value on the loss of a close family member. For example, if a husband is killed, the wrongful death lawsuit may compensate his wife for lost future wages from her husband’s employment. If a child’s parent is killed, then the wrongful death action may compensate the child for the loss of the parent’s guidance and estimated future financial assistance.
Wrongful death lawsuits require a wrongful death lawyer to work in close consultation with financial experts and family specialists. This team’s job is to develop a complete picture of what it means to have lost this family member — and then to translate that loss into a dollar amount that will then be demanded in a formal legal action.
