Wrongful Death Lawyer Serving Myrtle Beach

Losing a family member is painful, and your family may be struggling to recover. Your attorney serving Myrtle Beach can help when you’re struggling to get justice and peace of mind after a wrongful death.

When a family member passes away, it can be tough to overcome that loss. Worse, you may have lost your loved one because someone else was careless with their safety. That can be a major blow to your family, making it especially difficult to move forward.

At HawkLaw, PA, we understand how difficult it can be to juggle your grief and a lawsuit against the responsible party. Let your wrongful death lawyer serving Myrtle Beach take some of that pressure off your family by fighting back when you’re struggling in the wake of a major loss.

Myrtle Beach injury and wrongful cases are primarily handled out of our Charleston office.

Finding the Responsible Party for Wrongful Deaths

When you’ve lost a loved one, taking legal action against the responsible party can be difficult. You’re filing a claim for someone who’s unable to file for themselves, so South Carolina law narrows down who’s able to file a claim.

For Myrtle Beach families, you’ll need to find the executor or administrator of the deceased’s estate, if you aren’t the executor. This person will act on behalf of the estate and the family to seek compensation.

However, being unable to file doesn’t mean you cannot receive compensation. The family of the deceased may be able to receive some compensation when the executor files a Myrtle Beach wrongful death claim. That can help relieve some of the sufferings you may be experiencing because of your loss, so it’s important to speak to an attorney who serves Myrtle Beach, even if you’re not the executor.

Compensation for Myrtle Beach Families

As the family of the deceased, you may have suffered greatly after the loss of your loved one, both financially and nonfinancially. A death in the family can be a difficult thing to process, so we’ll help you seek out the compensation you need to ease the financial burden and provide you with some peace of mind.

One of your first concerns for your damages may be the financial losses. The costs of a funeral and burial alone can put your family in dire straits, making it difficult for you to grieve and focus on your loss. You may also seek out compensation for your emotional losses, like loss of care and companionship. Seek out a wrongful death lawyer who can help your family get the full compensation they deserve.
