Seeking Justice After A Wrongful Death
Sometimes, the reckless or negligent actions of someone cost a victim their life. Even after the funeral, the family of the decedent still has to live with the consequences of the accident, and they deserve fair compensation to help them move forward.
At The Law Offices of Linward C. Edwards II, LLC, in Florence and Dillon, South Carolina, we know the hardship that comes from losing a loved one to wrongful death, and we know how to help provide the decedent’s family see justice after their loss. A wrongful death claim is not about making a quick dollar; it is about holding those responsible accountable for their actions and providing you with what you need for your future.
Our Dedication To You
Our goal is to do everything in our power to see that you earn the compensation you deserve. While a wrongful death hurts many people, not everyone can file a claim for their loss. In South Carolina, only the executor or administrator of the decedent’s estate is allowed to seek compensation in a wrongful death claim, and they have no more than three years to do so.
We know what is at stake in these claims, and we can help you receive a settlement that reflects the economic and noneconomic damages from your loss. Economic damages include the costs of your loss that you can measure in money, such as lost income, property damage, medical expenses and funeral costs. Noneconomic expenses are the damages you cannot measure in money, like pain and suffering, loss of companionship and punitive damages (fees meant to punish the liable party for their actions).
Our dedicated team works tirelessly to take on the lion’s share of work in your claim. While negotiations are normally the fastest way to receive fair compensation, we are not afraid to pursue your best interests through litigation.
