A loved one has died, and it might be someone else's fault. There is no easy way to deal with this.

You need an experienced wrongful death attorney who understands what you're going through and who can skillfully promote your legal interests at this trying time.

I have been serving the Asheville, North Carolina, community as an attorney for more than 30 years.

If you think a loved one has died owing to the negligence or wrongful actions of another person, contact me for a free consultation about your case.

Contact an Experienced Lawyer Immediately

If you feel someone you love has died because of another party's negligence, you should contact a lawyer immediately for the following reasons:

  • In North Carolina, you need to bring a wrongful death claim within two years after the accident, compared with three years for other personal injury claims.
  • For a wrongful death claim, the lawyer needs to get on the scene right away to obtain evidence before it is lost, destroyed or becomes otherwise unavailable.
  • When you contact me, I will provide you with a free initial consultation, initial investigation and analysis of your potential claim, and I will not charge you attorney's fees unless your case is ultimately successful.
  • The sooner you start the process, the sooner you can get recover damages and move on with your life.

A Deep Well of Experience Handling Wrongful Death, Including Catastrophic Injury Claims

In more than 30 years of practice, I have handled a large number of catastrophic wrongful death cases. A case is considered catastrophic when one is killed through an extraordinarily tragic event, such as falling from a building, being hit by a tractor-trailer, and the like. The legal process is often quite complicated in a wrongful death case, with insurance companies typically being aggressive and, in some instances, combative.
