Making Things Right For The Loved Ones Of Fatal Accident Victims
No one should lose their life as a result of crossing the street or walking down a sidewalk.
Unfortunately, hundreds of pedestrians are killed each year in North Carolina. In 2019, 228 pedestrians lost their lives in a traffic accident, which is a significant increase from 148 deaths in 2009.
If you have lost a loved one in a fatal pedestrian accident, it is important to understand your rights. Your family has the right to be compensated for your tragic loss, and you have the right to pursue an outcome that holds those responsible accountable for what your family is going through as a result of their negligence.

Wrongful Death Compensation For Fatal Pedestrian Accidents
It is important to understand what a wrongful death claim is not. It is not an attempt to replace your loved one. No settlement, jury verdict or amount of money in the world can replace your family member and what they meant to you. What a wrongful death claim can do is provide you and your family with financial compensation to cover damages such as:
- Medical bills
- The victim’s pain and suffering while alive
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Lost future earnings
- Loss of companionship
These are straightforward things to be compensated for. Unfortunately, the insurance company does not see it the same way. The insurance dragons will pull out all the stops to avoid doing the right thing for families affected by the wrongful death of a loved one. Our team of proven lawyers includes a former insurance company defense attorney. We know the games insurance companies will attempt to play, and we’re ready to slay the insurance dragons to ensure you get the full financial compensation you are entitled to.
Proving Fault In Fatal Pedestrian Accidents
