Wrongful Death

Wrongful death cases are the most heart-wrenching for any lawyer. The personal injury attorneys at Lourie Law Firm have spent decades sitting with people who have lost a loved on due to someone else’s negligence. We know that there’s no way to console someone in the face of a tragic, preventable loss.

There is a way, though, to hold the negligent party responsible. That’s where our experienced personal injury lawyers come in. We fight fiercely to achieve justice for the clients we represent. We have the experience to put together a solid case, the legal skills to take it to trial if necessary and the compassion that comes from representing clients who are grieving and hurt.

Legally, a wrongful death is one caused by someone’s negligence or recklessness. It can be due to an action or inaction. It can stem from someone’s carelessness, from a defective product or from someone whose services were not up to standard. Lourie Law Firm has represented clients in a range of wrongful death cases, including:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Product liability
  • Dangerous drugs
  • Medical devices
  • Nursing home abuse or negligence

No matter the cause or circumstances, our compassionate attorneys will guide you through the process. We’ll conduct a thorough investigation, poring over accident reports, medical records and any other documentation. We’ll interview witnesses, and we’ll consult experts such as accident reconstructionists and medical professionals.

Once we establish negligence, we then move on to determining the value of your claim. Compensation can include medical expenses, lost wages, funeral costs, lost of companionship, pain and suffering, punitive damages, and more.

South Carolina law covering wrongful death lawsuits is complicated. We have the legal experience to navigate pre-trial negotiations, trials, required approvals from judges and appeals if necessary. If children are among the beneficiaries, we can help establish conservatorships that protect the money for them.

If you’ve lost a loved one due to someone’s, or some company’s, negligence, contact Lourie Law Firm to see how our wrongful death attorneys can help. The initial consultation is free, and we work on a contingency-fee basis. That means you pay us no fees until we get a fair settlement for you.
