Spartanburg Wrongful Death Lawyers

Spartanburg Wrongful Death LawyersThe loss of a loved one is the most devastating type of trauma a person can go through. The thought that the negligence of someone else led to that death makes the devastation even worse. While nothing can bring your loved one back, the Spartanburg wrongful death attorneys at Hodge & Langley Law Firm can help you obtain a measure of justice for your loss through compensation for the medical expenses your loved one incurred prior to death, their pain and suffering, and for funeral expenses. We can also help family members seek compensation for lost wages and loss of companionship.


Wrongful death may be the result of several factors. Some examples of problems or situations that lead to wrongful death cases include:

  • Product liability, in which a product has been made with flaws or fails to perform, resulting in death
  • Police negligence or jail negligence, in which officers or jailers act in a manner (either with deadly force, using weapons, or by not intervening or monitoring) that leads to severe injury and death
  • Car accidents or commercial truck accidents that result in death
  • Nursing home negligence or abuse, in which caretakers either fail to adequately provide care or forcefully cause injury or death
  • Medical malpractice, in which health care providers misdiagnosis, prescribe incorrect medications, or perform faulty procedures, or pharmaceutical companies make faulty products or poorly warn of side effects

Should I Avoid Social Media While My Claim Is Pending?

Yes. While this can be incredibly difficult given that social media offers an outlet for you to share your thoughts and feelings with loved ones, these websites are often used by insurance companies as sources of evidence to dispute claims. Simply describing what happened might bring liability into question. And if you discuss any preexisting medical conditions your loved one had, the insurer might try to argue that the death was caused by those conditions and not by the tort.

Below we’ve listed a few social media tips to keep in mind throughout the proceedings:

  • If possible, disable your social media accounts entirely while your case is pending;
  • Otherwise, set your profiles to private;
  • Advise your other family members to do the same;
  • Do not accept new connection requests;
  • Do not post anything online even if you think it would not impact your case; and
  • Ask friends and family not to post anything about the deceased until the case is resolved.
