Mooresville Wrongful Death Attorneys Seek Relief for Grieving Families

Firm assists North and South Carolina plaintiffs in cases involving fatalities

Losing a loved one because of someone else’s negligence is heartbreaking and creates additional burdens for surviving family members. Beyond the grief, an unexpected fatality leads to practical concerns about financial matters, particularly if the decedent was a family breadwinner. Levine Law Group in Mooresville offers comprehensive legal support to clients in North and South Carolina looking to hold liable parties accountable in wrongful death actions. Whether the fatality occurred as a result of a car crash, medical malpractice or criminal activity, our firm provides strong guidance to help survivors move forward after a tragedy.

Knowledgeable advisers pursue compensation after accidental deaths

Pursuing compensation at such a difficult time can be overwhelming, especially if it becomes necessary to be aggressive and relentless in pursuing it. Our job is to help you overcome the hurdles you are facing while we stand by you in these matters, including those stemming from:

  • Auto accidents — If a family member has been killed in a vehicular accident in the Carolinas, the deceased person’s estate executor or administrator is the only party who can file a wrongful death claim against the liable party, seeking damages for certain surviving family members.
  • Birth injuries — A fatal birth injury shatters a family. If the death might have been prevented by an emergency C-section or a different type of medical intervention, our firm fights to provide some relief to grieving parents.
  • Murder — Along with facing criminal charges, someone who commits murder or is otherwise criminally responsible for another’s death can be required to pay civil damages as well. These matters can be challenging because the defendant might not have access to funds, but we examine the relevant factors before you need to make a decision.
  • Nursing home negligence — Many elderly residents of nursing homes are vulnerable and frail, making it difficult or impossible for them to express their concerns about substandard care. Should you be suspicious about the manner in which a loved one died, our attorneys review the relevant circumstances and assess if the nursing home or another provider could be culpable.
  • Workplace accidents — In both North and South Carolina, surviving family members are eligible for benefits through the workers’ compensation system if someone dies on the job or from an employment-related illness. We can advise as to whether a wrongful death action against a negligent third party might also be an option.

In North Carolina, the statute of limitations for these claims runs two years from the date of the victim’s death. South Carolina allows three years to make a claim, but taking prompt action in either state makes it easier to find the evidence and witnesses needed to make the strongest possible case.

Lawyers counsel clients on damages available in wrongful death actions

It can be difficult for bereaved loved ones to consider how monetary relief can make up for the permanent loss they’ve suffered. However, it is critical for many families to replace the financial contribution that the victim can no longer make. In wrongful death and survival actions, our lawyers seek to recover compensation that covers funeral expenses, medical bills that accrued while the decedent was alive, and the income and benefits that the victim would have earned throughout their lifetime.
