Understanding Wrongful Death Claims in South Carolina

In South Carolina, the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim is three years from the date of the deceased person's death. This means that individuals must initiate a lawsuit within three years to seek compensation for wrongful death. It is crucial to adhere to this timeline, as missing the deadline can result in the loss of the opportunity to pursue legal action.
