Wrongful Death

South Carolina Wrongful Death Attorneys

Losing a loved one is never easy, but losing a loved one unexpectedly because of the careless or reckless acts of another is always jarring, unexpected, and confusing. If you've recently lost a family member in a fatal accident, contact STACLAW to help protect and fight for your rights. Our Camden and Lancaster Wrongful Death Attorneys can help you navigate issues that may arise, such as:

  • loss of income
  • family support
  • medical and funeral expenses
  • pain and suffering

What is a wrongful death claim?

Wrongful Death actions are civil suits on behalf of the survivors of a deceased individual against the individuals or organizations whose negligence caused the death. The purpose of a wrongful death suit is to try and make survivors legally "whole"  by providing them with a legal remedy for the unexpected loss of a family member or loved one through financial compensation. We know the idea of being legally "whole" can sound a bit cold, but the intent is to make sure you don't suffer the burden of economic loss on top of what you've lost already.

What kind of event could result in a wrongful death suit?

Wrongful Death accidents can arise out of:

  • motor vehicle accidents involving cars, motorcycles, commercial vehicles, mopeds, bicycles, and pedestrians
  • workplace injuries such as being crushed, poisoned, electrocuted, hit by falling objects, or victimized by fire or explosives accidents
  • premises liability accidents including those arising from unsafe parking lots, swimming pool drownings, and slip and falls
  • serious injuries resulting from dangerous products and acts of violence that ultimately result in death.
