File a Wrongful Death Claim in South Carolina

According to section 15-51-10 of the South Carolina Code of Laws, wrongful death is any death that occurs as a result of the “wrongful act, neglect, or default” of another person or entity. The act of negligence that led to death must be the sort of act for which someone could be sued in a personal injury lawsuit. In terms of establishing grounds for a wrongful death claim, the criteria are essentially the same as a personal injury lawsuit.

As such, you must demonstrate the following in order for your wrongful death lawsuit to be successful:

  • Your loved one has died.
  • Your loved one’s death was brought about by the negligence or malicious intent of another person or entity.
  • You and/or other family members have suffered monetary injury because of your loved one’s death.
  • You or another party has been appointed as the representative for your loved one’s estate.

Following your loved one’s death, our Lexington wrongful death lawyer may be able to help you recover compensation for death-related costs and other financial damages you have experienced. Connect with a member of our team at J. Bradley Baker LLC as soon as possible to schedule your confidential consultation.
