Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in South Carolina?

Typically, a wrongful death claim follows an accidental death, such as a fatal car or truck accident, or a fatal assault (homicide). South Carolina law allows certain family members of victims to pursue wrongful death claims as a means of speaking for those who can no longer speak for themselves.

Those who may seek compensation in a South Carolina wrongful death claim include the deceased’s:

  • Spouse and children
  • Parent(s) if there is no spouse or child(ren)
  • Heirs if no other eligible family member survives
