Fatal Auto Accidents in South Carolina

Georgetown Co., SC – Fatal Crash on Hwy 701 near Lucy Grier DrIn the United States, motor vehicle accidents claim over 40,000 lives annually. Tragically, our state also witnesses numerous preventable accidents leading to loss of life each year.

When an innocent victim succumbs to another party’s negligence or wrongdoing behind the wheel, surviving family members may seek financial compensation by filing a legal claim against the responsible party. This compensation can assist in covering funeral expenses, medical bills, and lost income and provide some financial stability during a challenging period.

It’s important to understand that each state has its own laws concerning wrongful death claims and available damages. While monetary compensation cannot erase the pain of losing a loved one, it can alleviate some of the financial burdens caused by their untimely passing.

To successfully pursue a wrongful death claim, four key elements must be established: duty of care (the responsible party owed a duty of care), breach of duty (they failed to meet this obligation), causation (their actions directly caused the fatality), and damages (the specific losses suffered as a result).
