Loss Of A Child

The loss of a child may be the most difficult time of anybody's life. The delicate emotional situation barely leaves room for any practical decisions. If the death of your child was caused by the negligence of a third party, you should hire a lawyer you can trust.

At Alan M. Tanenbaum, P.A., we can provide you with the experienced legal advice, advocacy, and representation you need during this difficult time.

When negligence plays a part in the death of a child, parents can sue the party at fault, seeking monetary compensation for wrongful death.

In South Carolina, wrongful death claims can seek compensation for, among other things:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Present value of the losses of future financial support
  • The value of the loss of the deceased's love, care, comfort and company

Charleston Survival Action Lawyer

Another legal route to take in cases of loss of a child is to pursue a survival action. The Survival Action claim is in addition to a claim for Wrongful Death. In this case, a personal injury claim seeks compensation for losses and damages before death.

The elements of damages in a survival action lawsuit include pain and suffering sustained between the event that caused the injury and the moment of death. Other compensation recoverable in a survival action lawsuit may include medical costs, burial expenses, and other losses and damages.
