Effective Legal Counsel From A Pender County Native

Legal Action After A Wrongful Death

The immediate tragedy of wrongful death is that your loved one will no longer be able to share life with you. Your grief is likely more because their death could have been prevented. At the Law Office of Zachary S. Rivenbark, we help clients who have lost a family member through wrongful death incidents such as:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Work accidents

As an experienced attorney, preparation for your future through a wrongful death settlement is my focus. I provide the compassionate and personalized attention you would expect from a Pender County native. I fully explain how to take legal action through the civil claim process to pursue justice.

Facing The Future

After a loved one gets killed in an accident, you face the rest of your life without the financial support of your family member. A wrongful death settlement can include funds to cover:

  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Loss of companionship and protection
  • Loss of the deceased’s earnings over a lifetime
  • Pain and suffering of the deceased

It may feel strange to pursue compensation so soon after a fatal accident, but the truth is that you have a limited time to act to preserve your rights. A claim should get filed within two years of the wrongful death.
