When an immediate family member suffers the untimely death of a loved one in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by another party’s negligence, he or she has recourse under the law to pursue justice on behalf of the deceased. In North Carolina and elsewhere, a wrongful death claim may be filed in a civil court against any party or parties deemed responsible for a family member’s death in a motor vehicle collision. A first logical step to take in the process would be to contact a legal professional in the area who has experience in fatal car accident cases.
