Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Determining Liability & Compensation

When a person is killed as a result of preventable negligence, gross negligence, or wrongdoing, a wrongful death lawsuit can be brought on behalf of the deceased. In North Carolina, these claims consist of the following key factors:

  • Proving that the defendant contributed to the victim’s death
  • Proving the defendant’s negligence or liability
  • Proving that the victim’s death was a foreseeable result of the defendant’s actions
  • Proving that the victim’s family suffered damages as a result

These cases are especially complex and sensitive and require thorough, skilled representation. We carefully review every case to collect evidence and determine fault. We go into every trial ready to get our clients the compensation they deserve for the financial losses that result from a loved one’s death, as well as the non-economic damages incurred by grieving family members. Wrongful death lawsuits can provide compensation for:

  • Present monetary value of the lost of kin
  • Medical expenses related to the victim’s death
  • Loss of victim’s income
  • Pain endured by the victim before passing
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Emotional suffering and loss of support

Wrongful death actions require that a Plaintiff present evidence regarding the present monetary value of the next of kin. At Edwards Kirby, we believe that this is the most important aspect of every Wrongful Death action. This is not the value of your lost one to society, or the value of the deceased in the abstract, this is the value of your next of kin to you. Since [date of firm starting] Edwards Kirby has been successful in showing juries the true value of your lost one. Please contact us for more information or a consultation.
