The death of a loved one is always a difficult event to endure. When death is the result of someone’s negligence, North Carolina law provides a legal action on behalf of the individual that is referred to as a Wrongful Death action. A wrongful death claim provides monetary compensation for many factors such as the cost of burial and the cost of medical treatment that was provided to try and save his or her life. North Carolina also recognizes that the loss of a loved one’s companionship has a value which should also be recoverable.
