Lose a Family Member to Wrongful Death?

Let a Hilton Head Island Lawyer Help. Call (843) 842-LAWS.

No insurance settlement or jury verdict will ever be large enough to reverse the loss of a loved one. You can, however, demand financial compensation to offset the economic impact of the tragedy. Through wrongful death litigation, the law seeks to protect families of victims who die due to another's negligent actions.

Bauer & Metro, P.C. recognizes that a loved one's death is both emotionally and financially devastating. Like most injury cases, taking prompt action to preserve evidence is important. Witnesses must be interviewed and documents gathered to strengthen a case. Attorney Samuel C. Bauer and Attorney Robert S. Metro provide aggressive representation based on their extensive experience handling cases just like yours. Now, more than ever, you need to retain legal counsel for your situation.

Recover the Compensation & Justice You Deserve

Wrongful death suits can be filed by a spouse, child, or parent of the deceased. You do not have an indefinite time period to file, however. Once three years have passed, you will no longer have the opportunity to pursue a claim against the negligent party, which is why you need to retain the services of our Hilton Head Island wrongful death lawyers as soon as possible.

A successful wrongful death claim can recover compensation for the following:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Mental anguish by surviving family members
  • Loss of the deceased person's experience and counsel
  • Medical bills and expenses
  • Loss of consortium
  • Property damage and other financial losses tied to the death
