Wrongful Death Attorney in Fayetteville, NC

Serving Fayetteville, Hope Mills, Spring Lake, Fort Bragg, and all of Cumberland County

The attorneys at Armstrong & Barrington PLLC have specific experience handling wrongful death cases.  Both Attorney Bruce Armstrong and Attorney Adam Barrington have represented the Estates of someone whose life was cut short as a result of the negligence of another. 

 

North Carolina’s wrongful death statute, North Carolina General Statute 28A-18-2, gives the Estate of someone who has died as the result of the wrongful act of another a cause of action for the expenses for care, treatment, and hospitalization incident to the injury leading up to the death; pain and suffering for the decedent; funeral expenses for the decedent; net income of the decedent; compensation for the services, protection, care and assistance of the decedent to the decedent’s heirs; and compensation for the society, companionship, comfort, guidance, kindly offices and advice of the decedent to the decedent’s heirs. Punitive damages are sometimes available as well.

 

If you’ve lost a loved one due to the negligence of someone else, Lawyer Adam Barrington and Lawyer Bruce Armstrong are ready to fight for you.  We’ve represented families whose loved ones have died in automobile accidents, trucking accidents, and motorcycle accidents, and those who have died on the property of another due to some danger that existed on the premises, known as premises liability.   

 

A word of warning:  Do NOT waste time when it comes to a wrongful death case!  The statute of limitations for wrongful death is TWO years (2), NOT the typical THREE (3) years for other personal injury actions.  This means that the Estate has two years from the date of death to file suit to recover for the wrongful death.  Wrongful death cases are very difficult to investigate, prepare, pursue and litigate, and your attorney will need as much time as possible to properly pursue the matter for you.  We will fight for you, but we need time to be able to do it!
