Wrongful Death Attorney in Myrtle Beach
Anyone who has ever lost their loved one usually wants to find ways to overcome grief, hence the need for closure. But what most people don't realize is that closure comes in many different ways, including obtaining financial compensation for the loss of a loved one.
This form of closure comes in the sense that, on top of grieving your loved one, you shouldn't have to pay bills and other expenses deriving from their death out of pocket. For instance, if they were involved in a car accident and succumbed to their injuries while receiving treatment, you shouldn't be the one paying for these medical bills, the funeral and burial expenses, or the family upkeep the deceased would have provided had they been alive.
If you are looking for a sense of closure following a loved one's wrongful death, please fill out our free case evaluation form. A Myrtle Beach wrongful death lawyer from our team might be able to help.

What Are Possible Damages in a Wrongful Death Claim?
In a wrongful death claim, survivors may be entitled to compensation for:
- medical expenses their loved one incurred before their death (only for treatment related to the cause of death);
- funeral and burial costs;
- loss of financial support the deceased would have provided had they been alive;
- loss of companionship;
- emotional distress; and
- other related losses suffered by the surviving family members.
Should I Feel Guilty About Obtaining Compensation for My Loved One's Death?
No, you should not. Wrongful death claims are a legal means to address the financial and emotional burdens imposed on surviving family members. If you don't seek compensation, the insurance company will pocket what you may be entitled to and count it as profit. Do not allow them to profit from your loved one's death.
The Insurance Company Says My Loved One Was To Blame for Their Death. Do I Still Have a Case?
You may still have a case even if the insurance company claims your loved one was at fault. These companies don't really care, even in circumstances like these, and will do everything to avoid liability. To them, it's a game of profits and losses, not fairness. That's where we come in to help even the playground and ensure that your rights are protected.
Can I Still Recover Damages if My Loved One Was Unemployed at the Time of Their Death?
The employment status of your loved one does not necessarily bar you from recovering damages in a wrongful death claim. Damages may include various losses beyond financial contributions, such as the emotional support and companionship your loved one would have provided had they been alive.
Against Whom Can I File a Claim With?
You can file a wrongful death claim against the party responsible for your loved one's death. In most cases, compensation usually comes from their insurance provider.
