Fatal Car Accidents in North Carolina
Car accidents in North Carolina take place each day, multiple times per day. When you or a loved one has been a victim of a crash, you are likely to feel a sense of frustration, sadness, and hopelessness. A fatal car accident can further increase these feelings as you are suddenly faced with the loss of a loved one. This is especially true if your family member was not at fault for the crash and was killed due to the actions of a negligent driver.
Under North Carolina law, family members may have the right to file a legal claim following a North Carolina car accident. Our law provides for wrongful death claims to be pursued against drivers whose negligence has caused a fatal crash to occur.
