The tragic effects that pedestrian deaths can have on families are something we at the David W. Martin Law Group are aware of. The emotional and financial burden that follows a loved one’s untimely death in a pedestrian accident can be unbearable. This blog article will discuss the steps involved in filing a wrongful death lawsuit in South Carolina as well as the legal rights of families who have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident.

Pedestrian Deaths

Recognizing and Analyzing Pedestrian Deaths:

On South Carolina’s roadways, pedestrian accidents are all too common and frequently end in serious injuries or fatalities. Pedestrian failing, speeding, and distracted driving are among the factors that lead to the high frequency of these terrible events.

Legal Rights for Families:

The surviving family members of a pedestrian who is killed because of another person’s carelessness or wrongdoing are entitled to compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. Parents, spouses, and other qualifying family members may seek damages in South Carolina for their losses.

Different Forms of Compensation:

If a pedestrian dies, a wrongful death claim may be filed to recover damages for a range of losses, such as:

  • Costs associated with burial and funerals
  • Accident-related medical expenses
  • Loss of resources, including income
  • Pain and suffering of the deceased before death
  • Loss of consortium and companionship
  • Mental anguish and emotional distress

Proving Negligence:

It is essential to prove that the defendant’s carelessness or wrongdoing resulted in the pedestrian’s death in order for a wrongful death claim to be successful. To prove fault, this may entail obtaining documentation such as accident reports, witness accounts, security footage, and expert testimony.
