Fatal Auto Accidents in South Carolina

Georgetown Co., SC – Hwy 51 Bicycle Crash Victim ID’d by GCCOEvery year, motor vehicle accidents claim the lives of numerous individuals in South Carolina, leaving families to deal with overwhelming grief and hardship. Dealing with the aftermath, both emotionally and financially, can be incredibly challenging. The unfortunate truth is that many of the accidents that we see are completely preventable. Many victims lose their lives in accidents caused by drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol, speeding, or simply negligent while behind the wheel. Unfortunately, families who lose loved ones in fatal collisions often face overwhelming financial burdens that make the grieving process even more difficult.

To help ease the burden, families have the option to pursue wrongful death claims to seek compensation for various losses. These lawsuits are designed to help families get the money that they need to ease some of the financial strains they face during this challenging time. Some of the damages that can be recovered include:

  • Loss of Income: This includes the earnings the deceased would have provided if they had survived, helping to offset the financial impact on the family.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation can be sought for the physical suffering the deceased experienced before their passing.
  • Funeral and End-of-Life Expenses: This covers the costs associated with laying the loved one to rest, including funeral services and related expenses.
