What Will a Lawyer Do for a Family Who Has Suffered a Wrongful Death?

The assistance and legal advice of a SC wrongful death lawyer is always recommended after the wrongful death of a loved one. A lawyer can help ease the burden and stress that will follow the loved one's death. A lawyer can help a family get compensation for the wrongful death case and much more. Here is a list of just some of the things that a South Carolina wrongful death attorney can do for your case:

1) Open the estate in Probate and ensure that an appropriate Personal Representative is appointed;
 
2) Guide the family through the Probate process;

3) Represent the family and the deceased's estate to make sure that their rights are not violated;

4) Determine the facts of the incident and liability;

5) Negotiate with the adverse party to reach an appropriate wrongful death settlement; and,

6) If no settlement is agreed upon, determine the appropriate court in which to file the lawsuit.

The sudden death of a loved one as a result of another's negligence, reckless conduct, or intentional acts is unexpected and tragic. It is important that the family seek the advice of a lawyer to not only protect their rights, but the rights of their deceased loved one.
