Has your family suffered the tragic and unnecessary death of a family member caused by the negligence of another? We can help.
Wrongful Death Claims
Wrongful death cases may arise because of a variety of incidents, including car collisions, aviation accidents, structural or construction defect, and medical malpractice to name a few. At Rankin & Rankin, P.A. we want to make sure that the surviving family is compensated for their loss to the fullest extent of the law.
In times of grief, family members are often unable to appreciate the importance of a prompt investigation into the circumstances of the death and the preservation of evidence. These matters are extremely important in determining how and why the incident occurred and identifying the persons legally responsible for the incident.
Pursuing a wrongful death action will not bring your loved one back to you, but it will ensure that you and your children will have increased financial security in the years to come. Rankin & Rankin, P.A. has successfully represented many families suffering from the wrongful death of a loved one. Let us help take care of this important matter for your family.
Don’t just take the first offer of settlement from the insurance company if it doesn’t fully compensate your family for your loss and protect you from future uncertainties. Protecting your rights is important to us. That’s the reason we cover all expenses until the end of a case and then we are paid a portion of the funds recovered. If we are unable to recover compensation for you, you do not owe us a fee. This is called a “contingency fee” arrangement and is common among South Carolina attorneys who handle wrongful death cases.
We NEVER charge an attorney fee for personally consulting with you about your wrongful death case. We understand that many folks do not have the money to hire a wrongful death lawyer to represent them and protect their family’s rights. It is not something that most people have figured into their budget. We also understand how medical bills, lost wages and other financial worries, which many times accompany a wrongful death, can impact your family’s life. Do not let these obstacles stop you from obtaining the full amount you are due under the law as just compensation for the loss of your loved one. We are here to help. Call us today at 843-438-1305 and let our expertise guide and protect your interests.
