South Carolina is not immune from the tragic car accidents that end in fatalities every day in the US. In 2015, more than 900 people were killed in these accidents, most of them as passengers of motor vehicles, others as pedestrians or bicyclists. In each of those accidents, a family suffered a terrible and irrevocable loss. That loss cannot be undone. But our lawyers are here to help you rebuild following the financial and legal ramifications of your loss.
If the accident was caused by someone else's negligence, you deserve the opportunity to hold that person accountable. Our attorneys will fight tirelessly to pursue full compensation for your losses and for the harm this situation has caused. In a successful compensation recovery, money may be awarded for the following things and others:
- Medical expenses
- Loss of loved one's financial contributions
- Loss of loved one's benefits
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of guidance
- Funeral costs
- Burial costs
- End-of-life costs
- Pain and suffering
The prevalence of distracted driving and drunk driving are just a couple of things contributing to the high rate of accidents across the country. Dangerous roads, defective vehicles and speeding are also factors.
