Charlotte Wrongful Death Attorney
CURTIS C. OSBORNE
NC, SC, GA, DC, MD
Family members of a wreck, collision or accident victim who dies may experience enormous grief, and they may also face funeral costs and challenges in paying for matters like a mortgage, food, a car or other transportation, and other items which had been paid by the deceased family member. Those who survive catastrophic injuries (brain trauma, spinal cords issues, paralysis, broken bones, burns, disfigurement) usually find their lives dramatically altered. They face tremendous medical bills, and they are frequently not able to work in the same capacity as they had before their injuries. Oftentimes, they never work again. Whoever is responsible for causing the wrongful death or catastrophic injury of a person should be held responsible to pay the related costs and other compensation for all of the related harms and losses. If a loved one has died or suffered catastrophic injuries because of an accident or other incident caused by someone else in Charlotte or beyond, a wrongful death attorney with experience in wrongful death and catastrophic injury cases should be contacted.

Tractor-trailer collisions come with an elevated risk that injuries will be fatal or catastrophic. In wrecks with 18 wheelers or semis, the law in North Carolina requires proof that the driver of the commercial truck failed to use reasonable care, which caused injury or death.
For example, an interstate tractor-trailer driver is required to abide by regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. These regulations include the responsibility of the driver to follow hours of service rules and keep a logbook of the hours he or she has driven. This helps to prevent tractor-trailer drivers from becoming tired and fatigued, which can help avoid wrecks and unnecessary deaths and catastrophic injuries.
An employer of a tractor-trailer or other commercial vehicle driver may also be held responsible for hiring someone who should not have been driving a big truck or for not properly training or supervising the driver of a semi. Careless operators of big trucks who are unfit to drive should not be on our roads. The same basic principles also apply to pilots of airplanes via the Federal Aviation Administration regulations and operators of boats and other vessels via state and federal boating regulations. They too must take steps to avoid injuring or causing the death of others.
