Mother files wrongful death lawsuit after criminal trial

When you lose a loved one, it is hard to know what to do next. This is especially true if the cause was unexpected or even violent. Although financial damages may be the last thing on your mind, a financial future may depend on it and someone's careless or malevolent decision should not go unanswered.

Think of the future after someone has passed

There is nothing anyone can say to comfort you when a loved one disappears from your life. Your family, your community and your place of worship are there to love and support you but the wisest among them know that the sweetest words cannot alleviate the pain that replaces the absence beside you.

Talcum powder lawsuits raise questions of limitations

It's not simple to prove some was criminally liable for a murder, but it is often the goal of court proceedings. It can be even more complicated to demonstrate that someone caused a death without a criminal act. But that is exactly what civil courts can do after an untimely death through a wrongful death claim.

A wrongful death case can happen even if a death wasn't a crime

There are many ways in which actions that lead to someone's death are a crime under North Carolina law. But sometimes they are not, such as some cases of car accidents or industrial mishaps. This can mean that someone who caused another's death may walk free with little punishment.

What can relatives do after the loss of a loved one?

It's almost unthinkable to lose a relative to someone else's malicious or negligent behavior. Although the criminal justice system may or may not have something to say about this loss of life, the estates of the deceased may claim reimbursement or compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.

What can be part of a wrongful death lawsuit?

It's so difficult to deal with the loss of a loved one, even when their passing may have been predicted. The news is even harder when it is a surprise. Sometimes, there is nothing to do but begin the process of grieving. If someone was at fault for a person's death, however, it may be time to seek financial damages.
