Wrongful death of a loved one deserves justice and fairness

When a loved one dies suddenly, the loss can leave a family struggling. These issues may even be more challenging if the death resulted from the negligence of another party. Missouri families facing these circumstances have every right to seek advice and assistance in considering whether a wrongful death claim may be appropriate.

Wrongful death claims are often associated with fatal car accidents, but there are a number of other situations where this type of legal claim may be warranted. The death of a loved one due to a defective product could prompt a claim against the manufacturer or others in the chain of supply to the consumer. Construction sites are wrought with dangers and can become the site of a wrongful death scenario for workers and passers-by. Hazardous situations that cause death on the property of another party, such as slip and fall incidents, may also warrant a wrongful death lawsuit.

Fatal accidents involving negligent use of recreation vehicles may also be grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit. Accidents on train tracks or at railroad crossings that result in death and are blamed on the railroad company, train conductor or other party may also be grounds for this type of civil relief. Indeed, any time a death is blamed on the negligent actions of another party, the civil court system will adjudicate claims for financial relief.

wrongful death is difficult for families to handle on both an emotional and financial level. Having experienced legal support is often vital as Missouri families deal with this difficult and complicated issue. Our firm has more information online about these claims in general and the right of a surviving family to seek monetary relief by pursuing a civil court claim.
