Wrongful Death

A wrongful death action arises from the untimely and unfortunate death of a family member caused by the negligence of another person. A wrongful death case allows the family to pursue compensation from the responsible party, even though the most difficult part of such a claim can be accepting that the law can only provide an economic recovery for a family’s painful loss. Kurt Hausler employs a practical, professional approach to ensure that the family obtains a full and fair recovery, including damages for all medical expenses, burial and funeral costs, lost future income, loss of service to the family by the deceased, loss of companionship, and loss of consortium.

North Carolina’s statute of limitations for a wrongful death lawsuit is two years from the time of death, and there are certain requirements that must be met before filing such a claim, so it is important to consult with an experienced attorney in a prompt manner, in order to avoid the claim being barred by the passage of time.

With the assistance of experts, including physicians, economists and accident reconstruction analysts, Kurt is skilled in preparing your case, and negotiating the best possible settlement. At trial, these experts are available to deliver clear, professional testimony. Kurt can effectively handle your case whether it involves a pre-suit settlement, a lawsuit that settles before trial, or a trial.
