What You Need To Know About a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in North Carolina

If you have been injured in an accident due to another party’s negligence, you can pursue a personal injury claim against them to receive compensation for your injuries and losses. But what happens if a victim dies after the accident? In this case, their loved ones can seek justice by filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the guilty party.

RAISE THE AGE GOES INTO FULL EFFECT

North Carolina is the last state to raise the age for juveniles charged with certain crimes to be treated as adults. Prior to December 1, 2019, 16 and 17 year olds were lumped together with adults in our District and Superior courts. Court and juvenile professionals recognize that children’s brains are still developing at the ages of 16 and 17 and young people should be treated as juveniles in our juvenile court system for most misdemeanors and non-violent felonies. Every other state had raised the age, leaving North Carolina as the last state to implement this change. Session Law 2019-186 now allows kids to keep clean records and avoid the negative consequences that a conviction in adult court can have on a young person’s education, employment, and permanent public record.

Attorney Jason Taylor to Cohost Focus Groups About Normative Beliefs in Legal Cases

Normative beliefs are an individual’s beliefs that they hold closely to their core principles, and therefore believe to be the norm. Everyone projects their normative beliefs onto those around them, such as setting expectations for family and friends based on your own ideas. In a legal setting, normative beliefs can be a major influence on the outcome of a case.
