Anytime in our community there is a Greenville SC car accident pedestrian death its a tragedy. In each case, it is important the all the facts are gathered and analyzed carefully to determined what happened and the legal consequences that will flow from the fact gathering investigative process.
A driver must keep his eyes on the road and keep a proper lookout.
Whenever there is a fatality involved in a car accident, there are many aspects of the legal system involved. There is civil liability. Probate Court will be involved. There could possibly be criminal charges brought as well.
Moreover, the law aims to value the lost life and lost relationships that occur after a loved one has died. From my observations, in Greenville SC, we value relationships and family higher than anything. We love our family members dearly and would never want anything to happen to them, much less experience death.
So compensation for the loss of a loved one should be as much as possible. Compensation just for the loss of companionship, the loss of a guiding hand of a parent should be as high as possible. Because our society and our community is better when we have strong relationships in our families. And when those relationships are taken away because of negligence, the amount to compensate for that loss should be very, very high. I think anyone would agree.
