Charleston Wrongful Death Attorneys
We’re 30 Years Strong And We’re Just Getting Started
Losing a loved one due to an act of negligence can result in more than just grief, it can also trigger a lineup of issues, including career setbacks, emotional trauma, and financial instability, to name a few. While grieving the loss of your spouse or family member is undoubtedly the central priority after they pass, you may also consider filing a wrongful death lawsuit to pursue justice on their behalf.
A wrongful death lawsuit is designed to hold liable parties accountable if their actions, or inaction, leads to someone’s death, much like a personal injury suit. That said, wrongful death lawsuits can be extremely complex, and challenging, which is why it's important to work with an experienced attorney who has your best interest at heart.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
As a rule only those closest to the deceased may rightfully file a wrongful death claim on their behalf. In most cases, this means the spouse, adult children, or parents of the deceased will file a wrongful death lawsuit. However, if a closer relation does not file, any other dependents should be able to file a suit, or other close relatives, like siblings, step-siblings, or even cousins. To find out if you are eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit, the best thing you can do is discuss the particulars of your case with a seasoned legal professional. Our attorneys at Crumley Roberts can assess your case and help devise a legal strategy to advocate for your family and your loved one.
Compensation: What Are You Entitled To?
Depending on the particulars of your case, you could be eligible for compensation for several different aspects related to your loved one’s passing.
In most cases, the person filing the claim may be eligible for compensation for the following:
- Medical bills
- Burial expenses
- Funeral costs
- Loss of wages from the deceased
- Loss of wages related to care for the deceased
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
