Lexington County Wrongful Death Lawyer
Compassionate Counsel & Tough Representation
When a close friend or family member suffers an untimely death because of another individual's negligence or even purposeful malice, the grieving process can be intensified by feelings of anger and frustration.
According to South Carolina Code Annotated § 15-51-10, you have the right to file a wrongful death claim if another individual's "wrongful act, neglect or default" caused the death of a family member. Of course, we understand that no amount of money could ever cover what you have lost. Nevertheless, on top of everything else you have suffered, why should you pay financially for another person's recklessness?
