There is no way to make a tragic death easier emotionally, but I’m here to make the financial and legal issues that follow less of a burden on you.

I’m attorney Jacob Goad, and I believe that the right help can make a world of difference. Call me today at 919-944-4669. I speak fluent English and Spanish.

What Is Wrongful Death And Who Qualifies?

In simple terms, a wrongful death claim is what happens when what would be a personal injury case ends in the injured person’s death. By filing a successful claim, survivors may receive compensation for:

  • Funeral costs, including any services, caskets, cremation and burial costs
  • Outstanding medical bills from your loved one’s injuries
  • The estimated lifetime value of lost income
  • Other expenses related to the death

Your loved one’s life matters, and you should not need to suffer alone.

What Happens If A Person Dies At Work?

Workplace deaths are unfortunately common among certain industries, such as construction, utility maintenance, trucking and more. These cases require specific knowledge of both wrongful death and workers’ compensation laws. Fortunately, I can support you and your family in these moments of crisis.
