Special Considerations for Wrongful Death Claims Including Minors

Without a doubt, one of the most terrible things a parent can go through is losing a child. Feelings of injustice and helplessness can exacerbate pain and suffering when someone else’s carelessness or wrongdoing caused the loss. We at the David W. Martin Law Group are aware of the difficulties that come with filing wrongful death lawsuits on behalf of children. We’ll go over some of the unique factors that must be taken into consideration when seeking justice for a child’s untimely death in this blog post.

File a Wrongful Death Claim

Legal Assistance for Mourning Families

It can be quite difficult to navigate the legal nuances of a wrongful death claim after a child passed away. Our empathetic group of lawyers are here to help, direction, and representation at every stage. We are dedicated to supporting families in their search for justice and compensation for their tragic loss, and we recognize the delicate nature of these cases.

How to Determine If You Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

Certain family members may bring a wrongful death lawsuit in South Carolina on behalf of a deceased minor, according to the law. This usually involves the child’s parents, though in some cases, other family members may also have the right to file a claim. If you want to file a wrongful death lawsuit on your child’s behalf, our attorneys can assist you in understanding your legal options and rights.

Determining Damages in Minors’ Wrongful Death Cases

Determining damages in cases of wrongful death involving children can be very difficult. Even while there will never be money to completely make up for the death of a child, damages may include costs associated with medical care, burial and funeral fees, lost wages, loss of companionship, and mental distress. With the knowledge and tools at their disposal, our lawyers can fairly determine the entire scope of your losses and fight for the highest possible settlement on your behalf.

Safeguarding Minor Beneficiaries’ Interests

Particular care must be taken to safeguard the interests of minor children who are recipients of wrongful death settlements or judgments. Our lawyers can assist in setting up guardianships or trust agreements to guarantee that any money granted to beneficiaries who are minors is handled and dispersed appropriately.

Handling the Legal Process with Compassion and Sensitivity

All family’s circumstances are different, and at the David W. Martin Law Group, we treat every case with the consideration and empathy it deserves. We are dedicated to giving each client individualized legal assistance that catered to their goals and needs. We are committed to assisting you in obtaining justice and closure through the legal system, even though we are unable to ease the grief of your loss.

A wrongful death claim can be very stressful to take on, and losing a child is an unfathomable grief.

Martin Law Group for a sympathetic and private consultation if you have lost a child because of the carelessness or wrongdoing of another person.
