Wrongful Death Lawyers
Here in Asheville, NC, a city with three major highways - Interstate 40 (I-40), Interstate 240 (I-240), and Interstate 26 (I-26 ) - all too often fatalities occur due to heavy traffic.
So even the safest of drivers can be injured or killed by others’ poor driving choices. If a fatal car accident on I-240, or any of Western North Carolina’s dangerous roads, has left your family grieving, you may qualify to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
When someone is killed because of the negligence or intentional behavior of someone else, the deceased’s estate has a right to file a civil lawsuit in an attempt to obtain fair and just compensation for the loss of life. Compensation that can be provided may include both harms the estate and to surviving family members.
Wrongful deaths can include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and trucking accidents but can extend into other aspects of your life such as criminal incidents, dangerous property conditions, workplace accidents, nursing home neglect, and medical malpractice.
Wrongful death compensation may include lost income, medical bills, and funeral and burial expenses of the deceased as well as compensation for loss of companionship, comfort, and pain and suffering.
The loss of a loved one can result in tremendous financial losses. During your time of grief and heartache, you need someone with compassion and the experience to make sure that you and your family are fairly compensated for the loss suffered.
