Damages That Are Recoverable:

Under South Carolina Law, the executor or administrator of the estate of the deceased may bring a wrongful death claim to recover medical and funeral expenses, lost income, loss of love and companionship, and in some cases punitive damages.

Factors that can be considered in determining damages in a wrongful death action are:

1. Financial support that the deceased would have provided over the course of their lifetime. Often times an economist is required to project the amount of these damages as they may run from the hundreds of thousands to the millions;

2. Services, comfort, or companionship that the decedent gave before his/her death to one’s spouse, children and other loved ones;

3. Physical and mental health of the decedent had he/she not suffered the injures that caused his/her death;

4. Decedent’s life expectancy before the injuries that caused his death and the life expectancy of the spouse or next-of-kin.
