Asheville’s 91,000-plus citizens enjoy a peaceful, culture-rich life, but this life can be cut tragically short through the negligence of another. When mistakes caused by others lead to the death of a loved one, their family can often be left with significant medical bills on top of funeral costs. Making matters worse, the family may lose out on the vital income the deceased once provided.

How an Asheville Wrongful Death Claim Works

A wrongful death claim works similarly to a personal injury claim, except the settlement or court award goes to the estate of the deceased and its representatives.

Typically, a wrongful death claim in North Carolina will include:

  • Money to repay medical bills used to treat the deceased’s injuries before their death
  • Reimbursement for funeral and burial expenses
  • Replacement income for what the deceased would have earned and contributed to their family if they had not passed away
  • Repayment for domestic services the deceased would have provided, such as childcare or house cleaning
  • Damages for the deceased’s pain and suffering they experienced
  • Damages that family members may be entitled to for losing a close family member

Only certain surviving family members may be eligible to bring forth a wrongful death claim, or a designated representative of the deceased’s estate can bring forth the claim. Auger & Auger will use its experience to recommend the best course of action for the potential claims. We frequently handle cases involving estate representatives and family members trying to recover compensation for the loss of a loved one.  We will do everything we can to work towards the best result that you may be entitled to under the law.

Learn About Your Possible Case by Speaking with an Experienced Asheville Wrongful Death Attorney

Most wrongful death cases relate to injuries or illnesses caused by the negligence of others. Common examples include car accidents, truck accidents, bicycle accidents, accidents involving defective products and on-the-job accidents among others.

A wrongful death case may result in a settlement agreement between the deceased’s estate and a negligent individual or their liability insurance provider. In rare cases, no agreement can be reached outside of court, so the case must proceed to a lawsuit and a trial.

Auger & Auger wants to help you and your family heal during your trying time by providing the best legal counsel possible. We are always up front and honest about your case’s potential, and we do our best to keep you comfortable and at ease throughout our representation.

You deserve to recover the financial compensation and damages that the law provides for. You can learn more about what your next steps could be by speaking with a wrongful death lawyer in Asheville during your free case evaluation.

The list of prior client settlement results and client reviews/testimonials, do not constitute a promise of any particular result in any particular case, as each and every case is unique. Each case was handled on its own merit, and the outcome of any case cannot be predicted by a lawyer or law firms past results.

If a recovery or settlement by trial is made, the client will be responsible for costs advanced in addition to attorney fees. Client remains responsible for costs, expenses and disbursements, including medical bills, within the scope of representation. The attorney’s contingency percentage will be computed prior to the deduction of expenses from the total recovery.
