Our son was tragically taken from us in a car accident. I was so comforted by Nancy White and her staff's kindness and helpfulness. I hope no one ever has to deal with what we did. However, if they do I would tell them to call Nancy White.

The Workers’ Compensation attorneys at White & Stradley, PLLC have been helping injured North Carolinians collect the Workers’ Compensation benefits they and their families deserve for many years now. We have handled cases involving:

With these clients, we have seen these types of injuries:

However, sadly, we also deal with cases where a Worker was killed while working. Wrongful death is a part of Workers’ Compensation and is an essential aspect of the package of benefits. Wrongful death law provides money to cover the funeral expenses as well as survivor compensation in the event the Worker’s death is caused by his injuries suffered while working. Not only is the loss of the Worker devastating emotionally to the surviving family members, the financial trauma is terrible, also.
Wrongful death law provides compensation for the following:
- Funeral costs
- Widow/widower benefits
- Surviving legal dependents
Now, within these benefits, there are even more specifics that your Workers’ Compensation/Wrongful Death attorney will explain to you at the time your case is reviewed.
Although the amount of benefits varies, a surviving spouse and dependent children may be entitled to only a fraction of what was earned by the decedent.
For more information, see Workers' Compensation: Wrongful Death Questions.
