Grieving the loss of a loved one due to a workplace accident leaves the family in shock and overwhelmed. The emotional need to recover is often sacrificed to the responsibilities of filing the claim. If you have experienced the loss of the primary earner in your family, the impending bills are often financially crippling.

How does the law work for me?
Our attorneys speak with you about the evidence surrounding the death. We want to determine whether it is considered a wrongful death caused by negligence. Based on the evidence we can determine what survivor benefits you are eligible for and the best strategy for presenting your claim. There is also a two year statute of limitations in place in North Carolina so any claims must be brought within that time period. If you need legal guidance on a claim for the wrongful death of a loved one, please contact the experienced North Carolina Workers’ Compensation attorneys at White & Stradley LLP to schedule a confidential consultation.
