Seeking Justice For Families With Wrongful Death Claims

Find Out How We Can Help You

A car accident or a negligent act on the part of a medical practitioner can change your life forever. You could lose the sole breadwinner for your family or a cherished spouse or parent.

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligent acts of another, you do not have to bear the burden of this tragedy alone. At the Miller Law Firm, PLLC, in Raleigh, we have been defending people who have suffered significant loss at the hands of others. We work hard to seek justice and compensation so that negligent parties are held accountable for their careless actions.

We Will Take Care Of The Details

We know that many families simply don't know where to start when it comes to filing a wrongful death claim. Our competent legal team will gather the evidence and develop a sound strategy to build your claim, taking care of the details on your behalf so you can focus on healing. We will seek compensation for:

  • Funeral costs
  • Lost wages and future wages the deceased would have provided
  • Medical expenses related to the accident prior to death
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of society, companionship, fellowship, services, protection, care, assistance and other benefits of relationship
  • Possible punitive damages, if the facts warrant it

Our lawyers represent families of those involved in fatal car and truck accidents (by far the most common type of claim we see), construction-related accidents, workplace accidents, and accidents caused by defective machinery or consumer products. Whatever the nature of your case, we offer experienced, one-on-one representation to help you make things right.

Considerations For Work-Related Deaths

According to North Carolina's workers' compensation laws, surviving spouses and children may only claim certain compensatory damages for lost wages and future wages, if the accident was work-related. This could mean we need to file two lawsuits, one against your loved one's employer and another, third-party civil claim against the negligent person or entity to seek damages for loss of companionship, and pain and suffering. We will help you determine whether this is a viable option and what your rights are when it comes to filing a work-related wrongful death claim.
