Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things anyone can go through. It is hard enough if the loved love passes after an extended illness or simply due to old age, but when the death is sudden it is much worse. When you lose someone suddenly there is no time to prepare yourself or loved ones for the death. A sudden passing can lead to feelings of anger, deep sorrow, depression and confusion. With the sudden grief of losing someone it may be difficult figuring out what to do for a funeral, memorial or even what to do with their belongings.
Trying to get through the loss and possibly care for family can be difficult to manage especially when the death is the result of someone else’s negligence. You may have questions that need to be answered and unfortunately the question of finances may come up.
There may be medical expenses that accumulated after the accident that could be just as devastating to a family as the accident and loss itself. Funerals are very expensive, averaging $8,000, and a cremation will cost around $3,000 in North Carolina. These expenses, on top of dealing with your loss can be more stressful and consuming.
The attorneys at Hardee, Massey & Blodgett do not want to minimize or monetize your loss as there is no amount of money that can bring back your loved one. A wrongful death injury claim is not meant to do this. The purpose of these types of claims are to help you and your family financially deal with the loss. Bills and final expenses can be difficult to deal with, but when you’ve suddenly lost someone and possibly have lost an income in your house due to the death, things are even worse. We hope that a wrongful death claim will help with this.
