Losing a loved one to a fatal accident is one of the most challenging events for people to experience. Filing a wrongful death lawsuit may be the last thing on your mind.

Who Can Receive Damages From A Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
According to South Carolina law, a wrongful death lawsuit can proceed if the death of an individual resulted from the wrongful or negligent action of another person. The lawsuit can be filed on behalf of the decedent’s spouse and children. If there is not a surviving spouse or children, legal action occurs on behalf of the decedent’s parents. If the decedent does not have a surviving spouse, children or parents, the heirs would benefit from any legal action.
Our attorneys have successfully represented families who have lost a loved one in fatal accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents

- Construction site accidents
