Fatal Car Accidents in North Carolina
Fatal car crashes take the lives of countless people every year in North Carolina. Far too often, these accidents are a result of negligence. If you have lost a loved one as a result of an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, it is important to know that you have the right to seek justice through a wrongful death lawsuit. Not only can this provide financial relief for expenses and losses incurred, but it can also hold the responsible party accountable for their actions. Seeking the guidance of a skilled wrongful death attorney can make all the difference in achieving a successful outcome in your case.
In North Carolina, it is important that you are aware of the laws guiding your wrongful death claim. When it comes to negligence, our state follows the doctrine of pure contributory negligence.
