Wrongful Death Claims
The unexpected and untimely loss of a spouse, child, parent, or relative is extremely difficult to endure, especially when it stems from another’s negligent wrongdoing. At The Stanley Law Group, we understand that no monetary compensation, regardless the amount, can replace the life of a loved one. However, a wrongful death lawsuit can lessen the financial burden families are often faced with.
Aside from the pain, suffering, and grief that survivors are left to face, they are oftentimes the ones left responsible for medical expenses and funeral costs. South Carolina law permits wrongful death claims to be brought against the responsible party by surviving family members to help with funeral and burial expenses, medical expenses related to the final illness or injury, loss of wages and benefits, property damage and financial losses related to the death, as well as pain, suffering, and mental anguish.
The Stanley Law Group is well-versed in litigating wrongful death cases in the state of South Carolina. While state laws mandate which family members should file the lawsuit, our attorneys understand that the loss of a family member has an impact on all and can include damages suffered by other family members in the same suit.
