Charlotte Wrongful Death Attorney
Compassionate Legal Representation in Your Time of Need
Losing a loved one is a devastating experience. When someone you care for dies due to the fault of an individual or entity (such as a manufacturing company), there can be an added layer of pain and suffering. At Benoit Law Firm, PLLC, we understand how trying such an experience can be and we want to help. Our Charlotte personal injury attorney Dexter Benoit brings both compassion and legal expertise to every case.
We understand that compensation won’t erase the hurt you and your family are experiencing, but it can help ease the burden of medical, funeral, and other expenses caused by your loved one’s wrongful death. If a loved one has been killed due to the negligent acts of another, you need to contact a wrongful death attorney who has experience getting maximum compensation for the victim’s family.
An experienced wrongful death attorney can help obtain compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages and benefits
- Loss of love and companionship
- Burial expenses
- Punitive damages
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in North Carolina?
According to North Carolina law a spouse, child, or parent, grandparent or sibling may file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a deceased loved one. In cases where there is no surviving spouse, child, or parent a representative of the deceased’s estate may file a wrongful death claim, recoverable by the deceased’s next of kin. In all cases, the statute of limitations to file a claim is the same, two years. This means you have two years from the date of your loved one’s death to file a claim or you may lose your opportunity to do so.
