Charleston Wrongful Death Attorney

In Charleston, the inalienable loss inherent in wrongful death cases present the highest stakes in personal injury claims. Not only is a human life irreplaceable, but the pain and suffering and financial hardships to be endured by their family must be compensated accordingly.

This is exactly why the Charleston wrongful death attorneys at Auger & Auger are committed to taking on the burden of pursuing and winning claims that provide well-deserved comfort to the families who have lost so much.

What Exactly is a Wrongful Death?

A wrongful death is one which is subsequent to the misconduct or negligence of another person, company or even a government agency. Many claims follow an innocent verdict in a court trial which failed to establish guilt without a reasonable doubt. The Charleston wrongful death attorney would take the claim to civil court, where there is a lower standard of proof; i.e. the guilt is based upon the defendant’s responsibility by a preponderance of the evidence.

Examples of situations which might result in wrongful death claims would be auto or truck accidents, pedestrian, and bicycle accidents, occupational hazards or death during a supervised activity. More willfully violent acts such as murder or suicide as a result of abuse or harassment would also fall under the category of wrongful deaths. Pecuniary injuries are generally awarded for financial loss of support, services, the lost possibility of inheritance, medical and funeral expenses. In Charleston, punitive damages are also awarded to deter a defendant from future maliciously harmful intentions.

Wrongful Death Suicides from Bullying

Bullying is the catchphrase for one of the biggest concerns of today’s parents. From physical altercations to scathing messages and videos, the torture can become unbearable to our children. With the prevalent use of cell phones, the harsh words of classmates can impact them long after the closing bell of a school day.


CNN reported on a Center for Disease Control (CDC) study which supplied data from 1999 through 2015 showing a total of 1,309 children (ages 5 to 12) ended their lives at their own hands. Sadly, this equates to one child fatality every 5 days over a 17-year period. And, the numbers are climbing. In late 2017 an 11- year old Charleston female child committed suicide after her parents’ 2 months of complaints to the school went unheeded.
