Wrongful Death - Greenville Wrongful Death Attorney

One of the worst things that anyone can go through is losing a loved one. It's a difficult enough experience when the person passes after a long illness or due to old age, but when it's sudden, it is often much worse. With no time to prepare yourself for the death, there are often strong feelings of confusion and anger in addition to sorrow. It can be difficult to figure out what to do in regards to their belongings or even a memorial 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 line to walk.

When someone dies as a result of someone else's negligence, there are a lot of questions that need to be answered. In addition to the obvious ones like “How did this happen”, the question of finances does unfortunately have to be brought up. Medical expenses that may have been accrued immediately after the accident can be nearly as devastating as the actual loss itself. Funerals are also extremely expensive, and that cannot be ignored. Even a basic cremation costs around $3,000 in North Carolina, while an average burial is closer to $8,000. These numbers, especially when you're dealing with loss and uncertainty, can be enough to make your head swim.

Of course, we never want to monetize your loss. There's no amount of money that can bring someone back and that isn't what a wrongful death claim is meant to do. The goal of these claims is to help you financially deal with the loss. Things like bills and final expenses can be difficult to deal with under the best of circumstances, but if you have suddenly lost an income in your household with the death, it is obviously going to be worse. This is what we hope to help with a wrongful death claim.
