Wrongful Death in Winston-Salem: Vernon "Babe" Thompson killed in Wheelchair

Over the weekend, Babe Thompson was hit by a driver and killed. The driver committed 'hit and run', but later turned himself in. Charges are being pressed.

In this situation, it appears that Mr. Thompson's estate has a wrongful death claim against the driver and his vehicle insurance policy.

When there is a wrongful death claim in North Carolina, there is a 2 year statute of limitations in which the claim can be brought in the courts.
