Helping South Carolina families get justice after the loss of a loved one

The unexpected loss of a family member is even more tragic when their death is caused by someone else’s careless, negligent or deliberately malicious behavior. While dealing with the death of a loved one is always difficult, doing so can become infinitely more complex when you try to set aside your devastation to deal with the legal aspects of filing a wrongful death lawsuit. At The Law Offices of David L. Hood, our attorney and co-counsel possess a thorough understanding of South Carolina wrongful death law.

Our law firm represents families in wrongful death lawsuits involving:

Providing grieving families with dedicated service

We know the profound impact the loss of your loved one has had on your life, which is why we devote substantial resources to every wrongful death case we take. We often employ private investigators and work with expert witnesses to ensure every case receives the attention and resources it deserves. We carefully consider collecting and preserving evidence from accident scenes, and we seek out any witnesses to obtain their testimonies. We explore all options when building your case to try to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation possible under South Carolina law.

Types of compensation in a wrongful death claim

The damages you receive in a wrongful death lawsuit depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of the accident and your loved one’s suffering prior to passing. Our attorneys help clients potentially receive compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Loss of protection and guidance
