Resolute South Carolina Attorney Pursues Justice in Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Assertive attorney represents grieving families in the Columbia area
At Howard B. Hammer, I strongly believe negligent individuals and organizations must be held responsible when they cause a person's death. I am a zealous advocate for my clients who have lost loved ones in tragic accidents or due to the malicious actions of another. I am dedicated to getting families in the Columbia area and throughout South Carolina the maximum compensation possible — not only to help their family move forward, but also to make sure that those responsible for their loss are held accountable.
Determined South Carolina advocate holds wrongful parties accountable
A representative of a deceased person's estate may have a valid basis for a wrongful death lawsuit if the death was a direct result of another person's or organization's negligent or intentional actions. At Howard B. Hammer, I construct strong wrongful death lawsuits for cases related to:
- Auto accidents
- Truck accidents
- Defective products
- Lack of proper security
- Medical malpractice
- Birth injuries
- Nursing home abuse and neglect
- Slips and falls
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Motorcycle accidents
- Aviation accidents
My thorough understanding of South Carolina wrongful death laws enables me to skillfully handle your case from start to finish.
Hardworking attorney helps clients seek full compensation
Prompt action is critical to obtaining fair damages after the death of a family member. I am well-versed in the courtroom tactics the opposition uses to attempt to limit their liability, and I can counter their arguments with carefully planned responses designed to protect your rights. I work hard to demonstrate that you should receive compensation for:
- Medical costs
- Funeral expenses
- Mental anguish
- Loss of future earnings
- Loss of love, affection and companionship
- Loss of protection and guidance
- Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance
The damages given in a wrongful death lawsuit depend on the circumstances involved. To prove important factors such as the severity of the accident and the victim's suffering before passing, I may work with private investigators and experts to establish liability. I can also obtain testimonials from witnesses, collect and preserve evidence, and take other strategic measures.
At Howard B. Hammer, I will aggressively seek comprehensive settlements outside of court. If the other side fails to offer the remedy you deserve, however, I will be a forceful advocate in litigation.
