Greenville & Spartanburg SC Wrongful Death Lawyers
When a family member or loved one passes away in a fatal accident, there is nothing material in this world that can ever replace them. It is impossible to put a dollar amount on the full value of your loss. However, in wrongful death cases, it’s possible to recover damages that can help support the survivors of the deceased, as well as hold the responsible party accountable.
Damages that help support the survivors include compensation for medical and funeral expenses and/or loss of benefits and expected future earnings. Survivors may also be awarded damages to compensate for other intangible but important things such as pain and suffering, loss of companionship and/or loss of consortium. Finally, some courts may award punitive damages, which are intended to punish the defendant for wrongdoing.
Examples of wrongful death include auto accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, defective products and accidents in the workplace. For a wrongful death suit to be successful, you must demonstrate that the party you’re holding responsible did cause the death of your loved one and behaved negligently, recklessly, or with a disregard for safety, or had intent to harm or kill.
