A: A North Carolina attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. I'm sorry for this loss. This would need to be discussed with North Carolina attorneys in greater detail. It could depend on the capacity of the victim, whether employee or pedestrian or other, the policy, details on how the accident occurred, respective shares of fault of everyone involved, relationship of a prospective plaintiff to the victim, applicable North Carolina laws, and other factors. Law firms that handle such cases generally offer free initial consults. Good luck
