Between the years 2011 and 2015, there were more than 4,900 pedestrian-related traffic accidents in South Carolina, as reported by the Department of Public Safety of that state.

Your loved one deserves justice, and surviving family members may be entitled to financial compensation if they were killed in an accident in South Carolina caused by another party’s carelessness if the accident resulted in the victim’s death. The process of filing a lawsuit for wrongful death may be time-consuming and confusing.
If you have recently lost a loved one, whether or not you are eligible for compensation will depend on the circumstances surrounding the decedent’s passing as well as the nature of your relationship with the person who passed away. Nobody should ever have to go through the anguish of losing a loved one in an accident that might have been prevented. When you are in the midst of mourning the death of a loved one in your family, the last thing you want to focus on is a legal issue that has to be resolved.
