Many people in North Carolina likely remember the criminal trial of O.J. Simpson during the 1990s in which he was found not guilty of murdering his wife, Nicole Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman. They might also be aware that Ron Goldman's family won a civil wrongful death lawsuit against Simpson in which they were awarded $33.5 million.

Employer's liability in murder case

North Carolina companies should know that they could be held responsible for the actions of an employee if they had prior knowledge of the employee's abusive behavior.

When can someone file a wrongful death claim?

A death in a North Carolina family can substantially disrupt normal life and inflict financial hardships. When a surviving family member has cause to believe that negligent actions by another party resulted in the death, then a lawsuit can be brought forward on behalf of the victim's estate. Generally, any wrongful acts or neglect that might have imposed liability for damages upon someone if the victim had survived would serve as qualified reasons to pursue damages for wrongful death.
