A lawsuit can't bring your loved one back or fill the void. The purpose of a wrongful death action is to compensate the survivors for any financial hardships and to hold the negligent party responsible for the profound loss of a preventable death.
The Myrtle Beach law firm of McCutchen Vaught Geddie & Hucks, P.A., represents individuals and families of the Grand Strand and throughout South Carolina in wrongful death lawsuits. Our experienced and compassionate lawyers will take on the legal burdens while you grieve the loss of your loved one and put your lives back together.
Personal injury attorney Gene Vaught, together with Luther McCutchen, have more than 50 years of experience representing people in Horry County, Georgetown County and statewide who have suffered the tragic loss of a loved one due to an accident or negligence of others:
When liability is disputed, we commence a thorough investigation and work with many professionals to establish the negligence or willful acts that resulted in death.
We work with family members to understand their loss and calculate appropriate damages. In addition to hospital bills, funeral expenses and projected earnings, a wrongful death lawsuit seeks noneconomic damages such as emotional trauma and loss of companionship, affection and consortium, and loss of the person's services and support. We prepare day-in-the-life videos and other means of demonstrating the tangible loss of that person's presence. If the victim endured conscious pain and suffering prior to death, there may be an additional survivor action on behalf of the person's estate.
If you have lost a loved one due to an accident, speak with our Myrtle Beach wrongful death attorneys about your potential claims. There is no charge for consultation and all cases are handled on a contingent fee basis, which means you pay no attorney's fees unless and until monies are recovered for you.
