North and South Carolina Wrongful Death Lawyer
Lo ayudaremos a obtener una compensación justa para usted y su familia
While emotionally charged, a wrongful death claim also has many legal issues that need to be handled by an experienced attorney. Losing a loved one in a fatal accident creates grief, fear and anger, affecting your ability to make important decisions. The law office of G. Patrick Hunter III in Charlotte, North Carolina has represented hundreds of family members who have lost loved ones.
Many attorneys who exclusively handle personal injury and wrongful death cases will claim to handle all aspects of a wrongful death claim. But if they have no experience in estate administration law, they are sometimes venturing into an area of practice where they cannot fully represent the client. Attorney G. Patrick Hunter III has twenty years of experience in practicing estate administration.
Only a duly appointed Administrator appointed by the court in the County where the decedent resided can prosecute a wrongful death claim. If the person was a temporary worker and died with his family residing outside the United States, we will retain a local attorney as Administrator to be appointed by the Court. While you are grieving your loss, we will handle the legal affairs on your behalf.
If you lost a loved one, you are entitled to compensation for hospital and medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, reasonable funeral expenses, and the monetary value of lost net income/lifetime earnings in the future, protection and assistance, companionship, comfort, and guidance. While your loved one may have had life insurance, it may not cover the money that you need and are entitled to following a tragic and avoidable death.
State laws may limit the time you have to bring a legal claim. Protect your rights today by calling attorney G. Patrick Hunter III today for a free consultation and case evaluation at 704-332-4510. Spanish-speaking services are available. There is no fee for our services unless a recovery is won.
