Fatal Car Accidents and Wrongful Death Claims Attorney Serving Charleston, West Ashley and James Island
If the death was caused by negligence, South Carolina law requires that the at-fault party shoulder the financial burden created by the wreck, not the deceased’s innocent family members. They may wonder how and why the accident happened. They may also question who’s to blame. If an investigation finds that the deliberate or negligent actions of another driver caused the accident, South Carolina law is designed to ensure that the financial burden of a car accident does not fall upon innocent victims. In other words, for justice to be served, the party responsible for a loved one’s fatal car accident must be held responsible for losses relating to the crash.
Families may pursue a wrongful death claim, and if it is successfully awarded, they might recover damages and losses for the following:
- Funeral expenses
- Medical expenses
- Loss of wages and benefits
- Property damages or other financial losses pertaining to the loved one’s death
- Loss of the loved one’s experience, knowledge and judgment
- Loss of the loved one’s care, companionship, love and protection
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish suffered
