Fatal Semi-Truck Accidents in South Carolina
Communities in South Carolina rely almost entirely—80 percent—on trucks to transport their goods. Drivers of regular passenger cars are at risk when sharing the road with massive commercial trucks. Over 66 percent of all truck accidents, according to a recent report from the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, include a semi-truck.
It is never simple to move past the death of a loved one. It could be especially difficult if you believe the tragedy might have been avoided if the reckless party had acted appropriately. You have the legal right to demand compensation from the negligent person if their conduct led to the death of a close friend or member of your family. Whether it is a company or a single person, we will make sure that the offender is held accountable for the harm they have caused.
If it can be established that someone died as a result of another person’s activities, whether those actions were intentional or negligent, wrongful death claims may be made under South Carolina law. The surviving spouse and children of the deceased may bring the lawsuit on their behalf. Parents of the deceased person may file a lawsuit on their behalf if there is no surviving spouse or children. The heirs stand to benefit financially from any legal action brought if the deceased did not leave behind a spouse, children, or parents.
