How we help families of victims after a fatal accident

No resident of the Raleigh metro area ever wants to get a call or a knock at the door in the middle of the night from the police when the news is that a loved one has died in a car accident. For one, no amount of money can ever bring a loved one back from the grave. For two, despite not wanting to even think about it at the time of loss, a person's death will inevitably have financial consequences for the grieving family.

It is to help alleviate the financial consequences of a person's untimely and preventable death that a personal injury attorney does his or her work. The attorneys at our Cary, North Carolina, law office understand that a sudden death can be a profound financial setback for a family. Unfortunately, others do not always treat the family accordingly and may not give them compensation when they truly deserve it.

Our office takes three important steps each time we take on a new case involving a fatal motor vehicle accident. For one, we move quickly to investigate fatal accidents thoroughly. Although most police try to do their jobs well, details of a crash do get missed, and it is important for a grieving family to have someone on their side who will look at all dimensions of an accident and do so quickly.

Moreover, in serious accidents, there will likely be more than one insurance company or other party against which the family might want to pursue a legal case. It can be difficult to know exactly where to turn when multiple parties are involved, but our office has experience handling such cases and have gotten successful outcomes for many clients.

Finally, our attorneys are always looking at their cases with an eye toward trial. While we will of course settle a case if our client wishes us to do so, we prepare to take our cases to a jury or judge so that a family can get all of the compensation to which they are entitled.
