Wrongful Death Attorney in Columbia, South Carolina

    Wrongful death occurs when a person dies as the result of the negligent act of someone else, including a business or other party. These are among the most tragic and heartbreaking cases a law firm handles. Often, wrongful death cases involve more than one at-fault party, which can make pursuing them especially complex. Experiencing the loss of someone close to you can involve significant emotional trauma as well, making it difficult to make decisions on your own. Having an experienced wrongful death attorney is the best way to ensure your loved one’s rights are preserved even when they’re no longer able to speak for themselves.

    In South Carolina and Georgia, surviving family members pursuing a wrongful death claim may be able to seek damages for loss of wages for the entire course of the victim’s lifetime, as well as compensation for their grief and sorrow. Determining these damages can be complex, so having an experienced firm that understands the calculations and can hire experts when needed is crucial to ensuring your claim is properly handled. It’s also important to begin working with a skilled wrongful death attorney as soon as possible following the death of your loved one so the accident investigation can begin while memories and other evidence are still fresh.
