What Type of Financial Compensation Can I Pursue During a Wrongful Death Claim in North Carolina?
When a family loses their breadwinner, the economic hardship can be overwhelming and is compounded by stress, anxiety, and expenses they never saw coming.
When a family member dies in a fatal traffic collision caused by a negligent driver or a deadly workplace accident, surviving loved ones can find themselves inundated with hospital bills, funeral, and burial expenses.
The task of coping with these financial obligations following the loss of a paycheck that is especially important to your household income can create major economic challenges.
We can help.
Depending on the circumstances of your loved one’s loss, we may pursue damages for:
- Medical bills from the time of injury until death
- Burial and funeral expenses
- Loss of financial support
- Loss of affection and companionship
- Loss of future earning and benefits
- Punitive damages to punish or prevent future carelessness by the defendant
Allow our skilled wrongful death attorneys in Charlotte to get ahead of the insurance company and the limited financial settlement they are going to try and offer you during your time of grief, so you can pursue the true compensation you are entitled to for your loved one’s loss.
Can I Pursue Workers’ Compensation Survivor Benefits for Fatal North Carolina Workplace Accidents?
Depending on the nature of the case there may be two types of compensation available for families who have lost a loved one in a workplace accident.
A fatal on-the-job accident may be the basis for survivor benefits through the workers’ compensation system, which is typically awarded to an eligible surviving spouse or child for four hundred weeks.
Insurance companies seldom dispute workers’ compensation cases where a worker loses their life on the job, but because of the complexities of these cases, we encourage all surviving family members to discuss their unique cases with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney in Charlotte, so they can pursue the full financial recovery they are entitled to for their loss.
Our law firm founder and managing attorney, Martha Ramsay, is a Board-Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist who has been giving a voice to those who can no longer speak for themselves for more than 25 years because we believe even in death, someone must aggressively and skillfully fight for their survivor’s rights.
The second type of compensation may be pursued during a wrongful death lawsuit if someone other than the deceased’s employer contributed to the fatal accident.
Depending on how your loved one lost his or her life, your benefits may vary. Our skilled and compassionate Charlotte wrongful death lawyers will walk you through your eligibility to file a claim while outlining your financial recovery options, so you can seek justice on behalf of your entire family.
