Wrongful Death Attorneys
What Is a Wrongful Death Claim in Missouri or Other States?
Missouri law, like the law in almost every state, recognizes that surviving family members are entitled to recover for the wrongful death of a parent, child, or spouse when your family member has died as a result of someone else’s negligence. Wrongful death claims usually occur from auto accidents, semi-truck accidents, defective products, workplace accidents, or medical malpractice. Having an experienced personal injury attorney who knows the wrongful death laws is critical to winning your case.
What Types of Damages Are Available for The Death of My Loved One?
Family members can recover lost lifetime earnings, loss of guidance and companionship, funeral expenses, pre-death pain and suffering of the loved one, and punitive damages, to punish and deter others from consciously disregarding the rights of others.
Do I Need a Lawyer for A Wrongful Death Claim?
When a loved one is taken from you due to the negligence of another person or company, that person or company’s insurance company will immediately assign adjusters and lawyers to your claim. We strongly encourage you to seek the advice of an attorney in order to ensure that you are properly prepared to deal with those lawyers and adjusters so that you are not bullied in the early stages of your claim. We offer free consultations to our wrongful death clients so that you know your rights and are prepared to discuss your case.
How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?
You should immediately contact a wrongful death personal injury lawyer in order to know your family’s rights. The time limit to file your wrongful death case varies depending on what state the accident occurred in.
