Fatal Car Accident Compensation in SC

  • A fatal car accident claim is a type of injury claim called wrongful death.
  • The case is based on the accident being someone else’s fault.
  • The purpose of the case is a monetary award to qualified beneficiaries, acknowledging the death of the loved one and the fault of the responsible party.
  • A traffic violation can make someone at fault for a crash.
  • Fault isn’t always obvious. As part of our representation, we investigate liability.
  • Compensation amounts should reflect the devastating loss of life that has occurred.
  • Insurance policies typically pay compensation. Accessing existing policies is critical.
  • In addition, a responsible party may be personally liable for damages.

You can expect the insurance company to deny or minimize the claim. They may offer a low settlement, hoping that you aren’t prepared to fight. When you have Greenville fatal car accident lawyer Bobby Jones representing you, the insurance company knows that you’re serious about getting justice.

Do I have a case for a fatal car accident?

You may have a case for fatal car accident compensation if:

  • A car accident occurred.
  • It resulted in death.
  • The victim was a family member.
  • The car accident was the result of negligence, recklessness, or intentional conduct.

Who qualifies as a beneficiary depends on what family members survive the victim. A spouse and children are always beneficiaries. Additional family members like parents or siblings may qualify depending on who survives the victim. A claim may be brought based on the death of an adult or minor child.

In addition to a wrongful death claim, a survival action may provide compensation for losses incurred between the injury and death.
