It is also imperative to file your claim right away because most states set a maximum time period for family members to file a wrongful death case. The statute of limitations is generally two years in South Carolina. Wrongful death cases that are brought to court after the statute of limitations period has been exceeded are usually disqualified.

Our staff will handle your claim with compassion, making sure you receive maximum compensation as permitted by law. Contact our Greenville law firm today for a free and confidential case evaluation.

Wrongful Death Damages
While there is no amount of money that can make up for the death of a loved one, compensatory damages in a wrongful death case can mitigate some of the financial burdens of the funeral, burial, and other expenses. Depending on the situation, claimants are entitled to receive monetary compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of support
- Loss of care and protection
- Loss of wages
- Loss of potential financial contributions and inheritance
