The Tragedy Of A Wrongful Death

Wrongful deaths are always a tragedy. They are often unexpected and always unwelcome. Their causes are varied: a fatal accident, contaminated food, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, criminal conduct or an illness or medical condition like mesothelioma. They share one thing in common: negligence or intentional misconduct. The death should not have happened, had proper care been taken.

Experienced Wrongful Death Representation

I'm attorney Karen McManaway, and at my firm, McManaway Law, LLC, I work to help families in South Carolina who have endured a wrongful death to recover compensation and justice for the death of their loved one. Wrongful death cases can be difficult for families, and I provide the compassionate legal guidance you need to manage one of these difficult cases.

One difficulty for these cases is that the victim is unable to participate. A wrongful death action is brought by the executor of the estate for the purposes of recovering compensation for negligent actions that led to that death. Only a spouse, children or parents may recover, and they may recover damages for economic and noneconomic losses of their loved one, the medical and funeral expenses, and the deceased's pain and suffering.

I Can Help After A Wrongful Death

You want a lawyer to assist with these cases, as they can be technically challenging, and may involve complex evidence such as medical testimony involving mistakes a doctor made or how the victim was exposed to asbestos that led to mesothelioma.

They also have a relatively short statute of limitation and need to be filed within three years of the death, in most cases. And they are emotionally trying for the family. I understand all of this and work with you to build the strongest possible case while respecting the family's grief and sense of loss.
