Losing someone to another person or entity’s negligence is a terrible blow that leaves you facing a challenging path forward. While no amount of compensation can bring your loved one back or alleviate your suffering, obtaining just compensation can help you move forward in the recovery process. If you’ve lost a loved one to someone else’s negligence, don’t delay consulting with an experienced South Carolina wrongful death attorney.

Wrongful Death

One of the simplest ways to understand wrongful death claims is by thinking of them as an extension of a personal injury claim. If the victim would have had a personal injury claim had he or she not succumbed to his or her injuries, then you very likely have a wrongful death claim. You’ll likely file the claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company, and you’re entitled to seek all the following relevant damages:

  • Your loved one’s lost earnings and lost earning potential
  • Your loved one’s final medical costs (incurred as a result of the injury that ultimately proved fatal)
  • Your loved one’s pain and suffering
  • Your related financial losses
  • Your loss of companionship

Wrongful Death FAQ

Who can file the wrongful death claim?

The decedent’s surviving spouse and/or children can file (through the executor of the decedent’s estate). Barring a surviving spouse or children, the decedent’s surviving parents can file.

What if the deceased has no surviving parents, children, or spouse?

The next in line will proceed according to the state’s laws of inheritance.

What if I can’t afford an attorney?

You won’t need to worry about upfront costs. Most reputable wrongful death attorneys work on contingency, which means that your attorney will be paid a prearranged percentage of your settlement or court award.
