Justice for Those Who Have Lost Loved Ones Due to Negligence

In more than three decades serving the people of North Carolina, our wrongful death attorneys have won many significant settlements and verdicts on behalf of those who have lost their loved one(s) due to others’ negligence.

Recent wins include:

  • $9,450,000 | Truck Accident & Wrongful Death — Our attorneys fought for justice for surviving loved ones of a family of four who were tragically killed in a horrific tractor-trailer crash on a busy North Carolina highway. We investigated the accident, proved liability, and filed lawsuits against multiple parties. Ultimately we were able to negotiate separate settlements totaling $9.45 million out of court.
  • $2,250,000 | Truck Accident & Wrongful Death — Our client was killed instantly when a truck ran across the center line and hit her head-on. We hired outside experts to prove liability, advised defense counsel of our intent to file a wrongful death lawsuit, and secured a $2.25 million settlement on behalf of surviving family members. We were assisted in the case by attorney David Kirby of the Raleigh law firm Kirby Edwards.
  • $850,000 | Mesothelioma — Our client died of mesothelioma cancer suffered as a result of asbestos exposure while working as a railroad welder. We filed a lawsuit against the railroad company and the insurance carrier, and identified former co-workers to testify on behalf of our client. The case was set for trial but we were able to negotiate pre-trial settlements with both parties totaling $850,000 in compensation for surviving loved ones.
