Cost to Pursue a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

If you have lost a loved one in an accident caused by someone else's negligence, you may have concerns about the cost to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.

Question:

How much does it cost to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit?

Answer:

I recently spoke with a woman from South Carolina whose father died in a car accident, and one of her first questions was, “How much does all of this cost? How much does the family have to pay to have an attorney represent them?” Thankfully, in South Carolina, most attorneys will prosecute the case on a contingency fee, which means that they will pay any advance costs themselves. At the end of the case, they will take a portion of whatever settlement agreement or jury verdict that they get.

Cost to Pursue a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

For anyone who’s going through that process, the important thing is to, early on in the case, contact a competent attorney. By that, I mean a trial lawyer who has experience in handling wrongful death and survival actions, and who can answer questions about the process of bringing the claim and how the claim gets prosecuted and how much money is involved in prosecuting the claim, so that you have an idea of what you would be entitled to at the end of the case.

If anyone out there has lost a loved one, please give us a call. We’d be more than happy to answer any questions that you have.
