When you hire us to represent you in your wrongful death case, you’ll not only be represented by a compassionate attorney, but you’ll also be supported by a team of case managers and paralegals dedicated to getting you justice.

In more than three decades serving North Carolinians, we have secured many five, six and even seven-figure settlements and judgments on behalf of those who have lost loved ones due to others’ negligence.

Our recent case results include:

  • $9,450,000 | Wrongful Death, Tractor-Trailer Accident — Riddle & Brantley attorneys fought for justice for surviving loved ones of a family of four who were killed in a major tractor-trailer accident on a busy North Carolina highway. We led a comprehensive accident investigation, bringing in reconstruction experts and even subpoenaing traffic data from Google Maps to prove our case. In extensive mediations with multiple insurance companies, we secured more than $9 million for the surviving family members.
  • $3,000,000 | Wrongful Death, Nursing Home Negligence — Our client contracted a disease due to improper handling of a medical device by nursing home staff and ultimately passed away as a result. Riddle & Brantley wrongful death attorneys took the case and investigated the circumstances of the accident, ultimately obtaining a $3 million judgment for the victim’s family in Superior Court.
  • $2,000,000 | Wrongful Death, Car and Truck Accident — When a woman ultimately succumbed from injuries sustained in a car crash involving an 18-wheeler, we fought for justice for her surviving sons. We hired experts to prove liability in the case and ultimately were able to secure $2 million in total compensation and justice for the victim and her family.
