Handling a Wrongful Death - Greenville Wrongful Death Attorney

One of the most difficult things that anyone has to go through is losing their loved one. It's difficult and upsetting enough if it was after a long illness or due to old age, but when it was sudden, it is often much worse. With no time to prepare for the death, both mentally and physically, there are normally severe feelings of confusion and anger in addition to sorrow. It can be difficult to figure out what to do from a legal standpoint when you're also dealing with the sudden grief of losing someone you care for. Trying to balance caring for your family and also getting through the loss yourself is never an easy task, let alone any of the other issues you have to deal with.

When someone dies as a result of a car accident or other similar incident, there are a lot of questions that need to be answered. Although it is the last thing you want to think about, the question of finances needs to be brought up. Medical expenses alone can be nearly as devastating as the loss itself. Funerals are often most expensive than you expect them to be, and that should not go unmentioned. Even a basic cremation costs approximately $3,000 in North Carolina, while an average burial is about $8,000. These numbers, especially when you're dealing with loss and uncertainty, can be enough to make you want to shut everything out again.

Naturally, we never want to appear like we are only looking at your loss from a position of money. There's no amount that can bring back a life, and that isn't what a wrongful death claim is designed to do. The goal of these claims is to help you financially handle the loss. Bills and final costs can be difficult to afford under the best of circumstances, but if you have just lost an income in your household, it is obviously going to be worse. This is what we hope to help with a wrongful death claim.
