Filing A Wrongful Death Suit

The loss of family member is a terrible blow, particularly when it is the result of negligence on the part of another individual or company. Whether the other party was a drunk driver or a company manufacturing faulty products, the lawyers of Anderson, Johnson, Lawrence & Butler, L.L.P., can help the grieving family members recover appropriate damages for the loss of their loved one. Based in Fayetteville but serving families throughout North Carolina, we understand that these cases are a particularly delicate balance between treating our clients with sensitivity and understanding while at the same time aggressively pursuing compensation in court or through negotiations.

As with other types of personal injury cases, there can be a tremendous strain on family finances because of medical expenses and loss of income because of family members' time away from work. Moreover, there are also funeral expenses, and there may also be a loss of income and future earning potential if the victim was an income-earning parent. This new financial reality often leaves families no choice but to pursue compensation.

How Compensation Helps Families

No amount of money can bring back a family member, but compensation can give families financial stability by helping families in the following ways:

  • Housing and other important bills: Most families need two incomes to support their basic needs, so the compensation is necessary.
  • Child care: Single parents with younger children will likely need help at least on a part-time basis.
  • Cooking: Single parents rarely have time to spare and cooking suddenly becomes secondary to earning income to help support the family.
  • Home maintenance: The spouse who was handy around the house may no longer be there to paint, do yard care or even clean.
  • Transportation: Families lead busy lives, and even children need rides to school, lessons, practice or other after-school activities.
  • Education: It can help pay for children's college or trade school tuition.
