South Carolina Wrongful Death Lawyer

When a person dies in an accident caused by someone else, the deceased cannot fight to hold the negligent party legally accountable for their misconduct. The family of a person who is killed by another party’s negligence, however, may be able to file an SC wrongful death lawsuit to seek compensation for their losses.

A wrongful death action is a civil claim that is entirely separate from any criminal case a negligent party could also face for their actions. It is essential for family members to understand that South Carolina state law provides people with only a limited amount of time to file these types of claims.
