Tell Us What Happened

What to do if your loved one was killed or injured in an accident:

  1. Report your accident to the appropriate authorities ASAP. Whether this is the police, an employer, a store employee, or a supervisor. Get medical treatment for any injuries you have sustained, don’t “shake it off.” Some injuries, like traumatic brain injuries or internal injuries, can have delayed symptoms. The sooner you can receive medical attention, the better for your health and your case.
  2. ​Collect as much information as possible. You or someone you trust should attempt to get information from any involved parties. Important information can be the names of all parties involved and any eyewitnesses. If you were in a car crash, get the other driver’s insurance information too.
  3. ​Take photographs. Photograph the scene, your injuries, the causing factors of the accident, and anything you think may be relevant. If you were injured on someone’s property due to a dangerous condition, take photos of the dangerous condition.
  4. ​Get copies of all relevant documents. This can include police reports, incident reports, medical documents, and communications with insurance companies.

The more information you have about your case, the stronger your claim will be. If your loved one was injured due to another’s carelessness, contact our experienced Greenville Personal Injury Lawyers to learn more about filing a claim.

Statute of Limitations for Wrongful Death Claims in South Carolina

Wrongful Death Claims are Subject to a 3-Year Statute of Limitations: You must file a claim before a three-year statutory deadline ticks away.

Death caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongful conduct can be life-altering. Your loved one may have been healthy and vibrant one minute, and next they were gone. Then, there is the emotional toll on family caused by the loss. You might feel angry at the person that caused the injury and depressed and anxious about your physical and financial and familial issues.

South Carolina has a 50% comparative negligence bar. This means that as long as you (or your loved one) are responsible for 50% of your accident or less, you may recover damages. Your recoverable damages will be reduced by the amount of percentage you are found to be liable for. This is why it is important you contact our offices to hammer out the details of your case.

We can help you recover the maximum compensation for your accident. This can be used to help pay for lost wages, your medical bills and any pain and suffering you may have experienced as a result of the accident.

What is Wrongful Death?

Complete a Free Case Evaluation form now

The legal definition of wrongful death is the death of a person due to the reckless, negligent, or even deliberate act of a person or entity. Such a case has four considerations:

  • The death of a human being
  • The death was caused by a person, group of people, organization, or other entity through negligent, reckless, or intentional actions or omissions
  • ​The surviving family of the deceased must demonstrate financial suffering caused by the unexpected death of the deceased
  • ​The family must appoint a personal representative of the estate of the deceased

In other words, a wrongful death is when what would have been a personal injury leads to a person’s death instead. A personal injury is an injury caused by another person’s negligence. Some examples include car accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, intentional killings, aviation accidents, deaths due to defective products, dog bites, and many others. If they, or other types of personal injuries, lead to someone’s death, then a wrongful death suit can be filed. A wrongful death suit can also be filed if the victim’s death resulted from intentional misconduct. In such cases, the perpetrator may also face criminal charges related to the death, but a wrongful death suit is separate and different.

Common Causes of Wrongful Death

  • Traffic Accidents (distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, etc.)
  • ​Defective Products
  • ​Medical Malpractice (misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, surgical error/s)
  • ​Premises Accidents
  • ​Industrial Accidents
  • ​Construction Site Accidents
  • ​Work-Related Accidents / Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Conditions or Substances
  • ​Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
  • ​Fires
  • ​Public Transportation and Aviation Accidents (Boat, Airplane, Subway, Bus)
  • ​Criminal Actions including Blatant Violence, Shootings, or Stabbings
  • ​Birth Injuries

Not all Wrongful Death lawsuits will arise from the above scenarios. Contacting our Greenville Wrongful Death attorneys will allow us to evaluate your case and see if you have a claim.
