North Carolina residents can never be prepared for a sudden and unexpected accident that takes the life of a loved one. Car accidents, for example, are one type of incident that can easily result in a fatality. Other types of accidents can be fatal as well, including workplace accidents and auto-pedestrian collisions. For the family members left behind to deal with the grief-stricken aftermath, the emotional and financial toll can be heavy.
If the accident in question was caused due to another party’s negligence or recklessness, it may be possible for the surviving family members to pursue a wrongful death case in a civil court in North Carolina. But, why would a family make this choice?
Yes, there may come a point in the case when you may be put in a position where you need to discuss the details of the fatal accident and how, exactly, the loss of your loved one impacted your life. This can be a serious emotional drain for many people. However, the potential financial recovery that could be awarded if the case is successful could leave your family in a much better position, financially speaking, to weather the storm after the unexpected death of your loved one.
