Common Causes of Wrongful Death

Wrongful death can occur in different circumstances, each stemming from the negligence or intentional actions of another party. Some common causes include:

  • Car Accidents: Reckless driving, distracted driving, or driving under the influence can lead to fatal accidents on the road.
  • Medical Malpractice: Negligence by healthcare professionals, whether misdiagnosis, surgical errors, or medication mistakes, can result in tragic consequences.
  • Workplace Accidents: Inadequate safety measures or negligence in the workplace can lead to fatal accidents, especially in industries such as construction or manufacturing.
  • Defective Products: Products with design flaws or manufacturing defects can cause fatal injuries, leading to product liability claims.
  • Criminal Acts: If a person's death is the result of criminal actions, the responsible party may be held accountable through both the criminal justice system and a civil wrongful death claim.

Navigating the legal complexities of wrongful death cases requires a skilled and knowledgeable attorney, and KD Trial Lawyers is dedicated to seeking justice for those who have lost a loved one.

What Damages Can Be Recovered in a Wrongful Death Claim?

Various damages may be recoverable in pursuing a wrongful death claim, depending on the case's specifics. These damages can include:

  • Funeral and Burial Expenses: Costs associated with laying a loved one to rest can be overwhelming. A successful wrongful death claim can help cover these expenses.
  • Medical Expenses: If the deceased incurred medical expenses before succumbing to their injuries, these costs may be recoverable in a wrongful death claim.
  • Lost Income and Financial Support: The family may be entitled to compensation for the lost financial contributions the deceased would have provided over their lifetime.
  • Pain and Suffering: Damages for the pain and suffering endured by the deceased before their death may be recoverable.
  • Loss of Companionship: Family members may be eligible for damages reflecting the emotional loss and companionship resulting from the death of their loved one.

At KD Trial Lawyers, we understand the unique challenges of each wrongful death case, and our experienced legal team is dedicated to maximizing the compensation available to our clients.

What is the Statute of Limitations for a Wrongful Death Claim in South Carolina?

The statute of limitations for wrongful death cases in South Carolina is generally three years from the date of the individual's death. Initiating legal proceedings within this timeframe is crucial to preserve the right to seek compensation.

While this may seem like ample time, it is essential to consult with a skilled Spartanburg wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible. Building a strong case takes time, and delays in seeking legal advice can jeopardize the ability to recover damages.

At KD Trial Lawyers, we recognize the urgency of wrongful death cases and strive to promptly investigate, build, and present a compelling case on behalf of our clients.
