The Loss of a Loved One – Wrongful Death Attorney in Columbia, SC
Suddenly losing a loved one is a traumatic experience no one should have to go through. The shock can take your breath away and leave you feeling lost.
No one and nothing can truly make the situation right, but that doesn’t mean nothing can be done.
A death caused by negligence or carelessness is a tragedy. Living through such a tragedy is challenging. You still have bills to pay and costs to cover. You have a job to go to, and potentially young children to continue caring for.
But there is a hole in your life that can swallow all your energy.
A compassionate and experienced wrongful death attorney can handle the legal aspects of a wrongful death while you focus on the healing process. Attorney Lori Murray is such an attorney. She will use her 15 years of experience to help ease your burden by skillfully handling your wrongful death claim.
Compensation in Wrongful Death Claims
The idea behind compensation in cases involving wrongful death is that surviving loved ones have been damaged and deserve to be financially compensated for what they have lost.
You are not being compensated for the value of your loved one. Rather, you are being compensated for the suffering you experienced as a result.
Compensation will help you cover any costs associated with your loss, as well as an amount for loss of companionship and the mental hardship you have experienced. It will not make things right, but it can help you solve some of the problems you are facing.
Justice and the Courtroom
You should not be forced to deal with money problems caused by someone else’s negligent actions.
A wrongful death lawsuit can help you get some small justice for your ordeal. A wrongful death suit may be the only way you get to hold someone responsible for your pain and loss.
