What Kind of Damages Are Available to the Victim’s Family?

Damages available to the family of a wrongful death victim are governed by state laws, specifically outlined in the North Carolina General Statutes, Chapter 28A. Damages that may be pursued by the victim’s family typically include:

  • Compensation for medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of the deceased person’s income
  • Pain and suffering experienced by the surviving family members.

North Carolina law also allows for punitive damages in cases where the defendant’s actions were particularly egregious or willful. Navigating wrongful death claims can be complex, and consulting with an experienced attorney is crucial to ensure the family receives fair and just compensation.

Does My Wrongful Death Case Entitle Me to Collect Damages?

If you’ve lost a loved one due to someone else’s negligence or intentional actions, you may be wondering if your case makes you eligible to collect damages. In North Carolina, eligibility for damages in a wrongful death case hinges on various factors, including the relationship to the deceased and the circumstances surrounding the incident. Spouses, children, and parents are often eligible to seek compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, lost income, and emotional suffering.
