Charlotte Wrongful Death Lawyer

What Is Considered Wrongful Death in North Carolina?

A death is considered wrongful if it is caused by the negligent or wrongful actions of another party. Even if the other party is not subject to criminal charges, he or she may be found responsible in a civil action and forced to pay damages.*

Examples of Wrongful Death Cases in NC:

  • Fatal car accidents
  • Fatal accidents at work
  • Fatal falls caused by dangerous property conditions
  • Deaths caused by dangerous or defective products
  • Deaths caused by medical errors
  • Drowning caused by unlocked gates on swimming pools

Get in touch with us by calling (704) 931-5535. We handle cases in Charlotte and throughout the state.

Compassionate Legal Support for Your Family in Mecklenburg County & Throughout NC

    While the civil justice system cannot make your loss any less painful, it can help you deal with financial issues caused by the death. By holding the negligent party accountable, the civil justice system may also help to save other families from going through what your family has experienced. For example, most municipalities now require swimming pool owners to install gates to prevent drowning deaths. The potential for wrongful death lawsuits forces property owners to be responsible.

    When an accident results in death, the victim’s family members are often left with many questions. Unfortunately, those responsible for the death may be unwilling to provide the answers. It may take a lawyer’s help to get the information you need.

    At Jetton & Meredith, our Charlotte wrongful death attorneys represent family members in cases of wrongful death throughout the state of North Carolina. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and explain your legal options.

    For more information about your rights, contact our wrongful death lawyers in Charlotte. We generally charge no attorney fees until and unless we obtain compensation for you.
