Wrongful Death


Losing a loved one is never easy. When you experience death due to negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of another person, the loss is more difficult to bear. If you have lost a family member in a fatal accident, you need a compassionate, committed advocate to act in your best interests in settling the legal matters associated with the accident.

At Everett Law Firm, P.A., in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, we have the knowledge, skill, and experience necessary to handle your wrongful death case. Contact us today to discuss your personal needs and concerns with an attorney who cares.

Death due to negligence of another can occur as a result of a variety of situations, including:

The insurance industry has successfully lobbied the North Carolina Legislature for years to maintain North Carolina’s “contributory negligence” law, which means that even if the victim is legally proven to be even 1% at fault for the accident, the victim will be unable to recover any compensation for their injuries. Our attorneys know the laws that affect your rights and have extensive experience handling the insurance company adjusters and lawyers.

We understand that no settlement could make up for your loss, but you do have rights. Let us help you ensure those rights are protected when someone you love suffers death due to negligence of another. Do not settle your claim until you know what it is worth. Our firm will provide you with guidance and information in determining the value of your claim. You may be entitled to recovery of medical costs, past and future lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages unique to your individual case.

In addition to representing the families of wrongful death victims, we also represent individuals who have suffered a serious personal injury due to the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of another person.

The insurance company represents the person who caused the death of your loved one. They are not in business to protect your interests. We are. Contact us today to discuss your loss and potential claim with a compassionate, attentive wrongful death lawyer at Everett Law Firm, P.A.
