Wrongful Death Attorneys in Summerville
Helping Families Recover Compensation for Loved Ones in Charleston, Dorchester and Berkeley Counties
Our lawyers at PMC Law Firm understand that a wrongful death lawsuit cannot bring back your loved one, but it can help get you answers and compensate you for your emotional and financial loss. Our team of experienced attorneys is here to evaluate your wrongful death claim and help you decide if the estate should bring a wrongful death action against another party.
Under South Carolina law, court-appointed personal representatives of the estate of the loved one can file a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party to help ease the financial burdens they have been left with. Although a successful lawsuit won’t restore the loss of your loved one, a wrongful death action can help you find closure and secure the funds you need to move on to the next phase of your life.
