Proving Wrongful Death in Greenville

When a person dies as the result of misconduct or negligence, the emotional effects can be devastating, a criminal case might be the route — which is many times resolved with a settlement between the defendant’s insurer and the attorneys for both sides. There may be arbitration or mediation as a middle ground, with the next step being a civil lawsuit for which a lower standard of proof is allowed. Our Greenville wrongful death attorney will need to provide proof of the following:

  • The victim did, in fact, lose their life;
  • The death was caused by the negligence of another, or with an intent of harm;
  • The family members are suffering financial difficulty as a result of the death; and,
  • There is a personal representative of the estate.

There is a statute of limitations 3 years from the date of death within the South Carolina Code of Law, Title 15, Death by Wrongful Act. If the family files suit within this time frame and the elements of proof are met, they should be compensated for funeral and burial expenses, any medical bills associated with the injury that led to death, lost wages and benefits, loss of the decedent’s experience, loss of the decedent’s care, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.
