When And How Can An Attorney Help?
Our law firm has brought successful wrongful death claims throughout western North Carolina on behalf of surviving family members. We have recovered wrongful death damages for:
- Vehicle accidents
- Unsafe property conditions
- Nursing home deaths
- Other types of accidents resulting in death
In North Carolina, a wrongful death lawsuit can only be filed by a person with standing, usually the personal representative of the deceased’s estate. Any compensation is divided according to the victim’s will or the North Carolina laws of inheritance if the individual died without a will. Our attorneys understand probate law and estates, in addition to accident investigation and insurance litigation.
Monetary damages can include funeral expenses, medical bills and the projected lost earnings of the person who died, and it can also provide compensation for the survivors’ loss of consortium, companionship, support and household services.
We will conduct a thorough investigation to prove liability and prepare a compelling case for fair compensation. Luke Baker is a skilled negotiator and trial lawyer who will seek a settlement or take your case to a jury if necessary.
