Fatal Car Accidents in North Carolina
Fatal car crashes can be quite devastating. The unfortunate truth is that we see tens of thousands of people die annually as a result of fatal crashes in the United States. Here in our state, fatal collisions impact a significant number of families every year.
Dealing with the loss of a loved one can bring with it unimaginable challenges. Families often struggle to deal with the emotional and financial impact that fatal collisions bring. The loss of a loved one can result in tens of thousands of dollars in funeral costs and medical expenses. Families may also face the loss of companionship and the loss of services. After a loved one loses their life in a fatal crash, families have the ability to file a wrongful death claim.
In order to file a successful claim, it is imperative that you are able to demonstrate negligence. This involves showing that the defendant owed your loved one a duty of care, they breached it, the breach caused the fatal collision to occur, and you have suffered damages as a result of the fatal crash. Although this may seem easy and straightforward, it is quite challenging. This is particularly true since the insurance company will do everything in its power to shift the blame onto your loved one in order to prevent you from getting money. For this reason, it is vital that you seek representation from a wrongful death lawyer right away.
