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.
