Should you file a wrongful death claim?

Fatal accidents often leave the family of the victim shocked and traumatized. In Missouri, the families of deceased victims of accidents may choose to file a wrongful death claim against another party.

Damages awarded in a successful civil claim may include financial compensation for funeral and burial costs, medical expenses arising from the accident and loss of income. The evidence in the case must, however, provide proof that the accident happened due to the negligent actions of another person or even a company.

However, when you have lost someone close to you, you do not always feel up to a fight, and you may wonder if you should bother to file a claim. This is why it is important to find an attorney you can trust. At our firm, you will find experienced attorneys dedicated to ensuring justice for the people left behind. Our company is dedicated to helping clients in every way through dedicated representation.

With any fatal accident, it is important not to waste time deciding whether to file a civil claim. The more time that goes by, the bigger the chance that evidence will be lost. If too much time goes by, the eyewitnesses may have difficulty remembering what they saw, and the accident scene may change. The sooner our firm can begin to investigate the accident, the better.

Representation when a loved one dies, due to the intentional misconduct or negligence of others, can be beneficial. It can allow you to mourn without having to focus on worrying about how to make ends meet.
