Fatal Auto Accidents in North Carolina
Fatal accidents are the cause of thousands of deaths every year in the United States. Here in North Carolina, we have seen a 21 percent increase in the number of fatal accidents reported between 2019 and 2022. In 2022 alone, more than 1700 people lost their lives as a result of fatal collisions in our state.
Far too often, innocent people lose their lives as a result of negligent drivers. After enduring the loss of a loved one, it is important to remember that you have legal options available. Your family has the ability to file a wrongful death claim against the negligent party.
It is important to recognize that the state of North Carolina follows the pure contributory negligence doctrine. This law states that families have the ability to file wrongful death claims to recover compensation. This can include compensation for medical costs, funeral costs, and various other damages that your family faces. However, you must be able to prove that the defendant was 100 percent at fault for the accident.
If your loved one was even one percent responsible for the collision taking place, their family is barred from recovering any amount of compensation for losses. This makes it vitally important to have a dedicated legal team by your side while pursuing a wrongful death claim for compensation.
