Fatal Car Accidents in South Carolina
The sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one can be overwhelming to deal with. Unfortunately, more than 100 people die every month as a result of crashes that occur in our state. Far too often, these crashes take place as a result of drivers who are careless and negligent.
We see many accidents take place as a result of drivers who fail to yield, speed, or engage in other senseless actions. When drivers do not consider other motorists sharing the road, they can cause life-changing accidents that ultimately take the lives of innocent people. Regrettably, the vast majority of fatal accidents take place as a result of actions that are completely preventable.
After losing a loved one, your family can file a wrongful death claim against the responsible party. In a wrongful death claim, the damages that can typically be recovered by your family may include:
- Loss of financial support
