North Carolina

North Carolina is a state that is a part of the United States of America. It is one of the thirteen original states, located on the Atlantic coast halfway between New York and Florida. North Carolina’s origins are inextricably linked to the first attempts at English colonization of North America. Beginning in the mid-twentieth century, North Carolina experienced much faster population growth than the national average. This was largely due to its thriving economy, which boasted one of the country’s strongest manufacturing sectors—and the strongest in the South.

Wrongful death Statistics:

A “wrongful death” in North Carolina is defined as one caused “by a wrongful act, neglect, or default of another” person or entity, of the type that would have entitled the person to file a personal injury lawsuit if he or she had survived. As a result, thinking of a wrongful death case as a personal injury claim in which the injured person is no longer available to bring his or her own case to court can be helpful. Instead, another party must bring the case to court on the deceased’s behalf.
