Wrongful Death Attorneys
Serving Beaufort, Hilton Head, Bluffton, Waterboro, Ridgeland and Beyond.
Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy. This process may be complicated further if that person died unnecessarily as the result of the negligence of another. A "wrongful death" occurs when someone is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another individual, company or entity.
Under these circumstances, there is never sufficient compensation that can begin to replace the person who has been lost. However, there is a tangible loss in terms of replacing the person's income and replacing the companionship and family contributions that person provided.
In a case of wrongful death, damages are assessed to compensate family members for their loss. These typically include compensation for:
- Medical and Death Expenses
- Loss of Future Earnings and Benefits
- Loss of Companionship
- (the emotional pain and suffering of survivors)
Additionally, in cases where it is determined that the defendant was intentionally or grossly negligent, punitive damages can be awarded. These damages are awarded to punish the person who caused the death to help ensure this type of action never occurs again.
