Wrongful Death

Wrongful death cases are different than most other personal injury lawsuits. In a wrongful death case, most commonly, we are seeking compensation for the family of the deceased. The victim’s family is often left with astronomical medical bills, and emotional devastation. If the death was caused by a wrongful act, neglect, or default of another, the family may be entitled to compensation. Some examples of neglect of another resulting in wrongful death include:

  • Drunk driving, or driving under the influence
  • Speeding or reckless driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Nursing home negligence
  • Defective products, including vehicles, machinery, and pharmaceuticals
  • Faulty safety equipment on construction or industrial sites

If you have lost a loved one due to a wrongful act, neglect, or default of another, you may be entitled to compensation. Some of the damages covered by this compensation may include:

  • Medical bills, including hospital, Doctor and ambulatory expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of wages, current and future

We recognize this is a painful time, which is why this confidential consultation will allow you to ask questions about your case, and get the answers you need with no pressure or obligation.

Premises Liability

Premises liability is more commonly referred to as a slip or trip and fall accident. Most slip and falls result in minor injuries, but occasionally, they can be severe and life changing. Property owners have a responsibility to ensure their premises are safe. If they do not take the necessary precautions to maintain safe premises, they may be liable. Some the most common places slip and fall accidents occur include:

  • Uneven surfaces without warning signage
  • Wet floors, including recently mopped or unattended spills
  • Broken flooring, covered by rugs or mats
  • Areas in disrepair with poor lighting or no lighting to see obstacles
  • Broken handrails that appear fully functioning

While North Carolina follows contributory negligence laws, depending on the negligence of the property owner, you may be entitled to compensation. These laws are complicated.
