If a loved one was killed in a car accident, you may want to consider filing a wrongful death claim. In South Carolina, you must understand who can file a claim and when a wrongful death claim is appropriate. Under the wrongful death statute, a wrongful death lawsuit is appropriate when the at-fault party was the direct cause of the decedent’s death. The claim, which is an attempt to establish the defendant’s negligence, should be filed by the decedent’s representative.
