Wrongful death and children


Car accidents can affect anyone, including the young and the old. Tragically, far too often a negligent driver causes a wreck that leaves a young child deceased. This can be heartbreaking for a surviving family, and the emotional toll can almost be too much to handle. However, once the family is ready and able to consider their legal options, they may be stumped as to how to show the financial value of their loss. While surviving families of deceased adults can turn to lost wages to calculate a portion of their damages, this cannot be done with children.

But when filed against a negligent trucker, a victim may be rightly concerned about the trucker's ability to pay for the full extent of the damage caused.

Though North Carolina is populated with responsible and careful drivers who are well aware of pedestrians and the protection the driving practices needed to keep them safe, there is still a significant part of the population that drives recklessly around these vulnerable citizens. As can be seen by a recent case in North Carolina, when this happens the results can be deadly.

Drunk driving still problematic in North Carolina


When North Carolinians first learn to drive, they are taught to be fully aware of their surroundings and to drive defensively. Though this practice may decrease one's odds of an injurious crash, the negligent acts of others can still injure those who employ defensive tactics. This is especially true when other drivers choose to drink and drive. These reckless motorists put other drivers, their passengers and pedestrians at significant risk of harm and death.
