Investigators find more irregualities in deadly limo's history

Missouri residents may be aware that a crash involving a stretch-limousine and a stationary vehicle in upstate New York claimed the lives of 20 people on Oct. 6. New details emerging from the investigation reveal that the license plates fitted to the Ford Excursion SUV when it failed a safety inspection on Sept. 4 do not match the plates it had on display when it was cited for a raft of potentially dangerous violations six months earlier.

Home Depot facing civil suit after employee death

In late April, Home Depot's request to have an appellate court decision reconsidered was denied. The company is facing a lawsuit claiming that its negligence led to a pregnant employee's death.

Wrongful death suit may be needed in different scenarios

The sudden loss of a loved one due to the negligence or recklessness of another can be devastating beyond words. While no amount of time or money can erase the pain that such a loss may impose on a family, there are legal actions that can be taken in a Missouri civil court as a means of alleviating some of the financial strain such a loss may cause. The scenarios that can warrant a wrongful death suit can be varied and can involve vehicle accidents and other fatal situations.

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.

Murder charge may open door to wrongful death suit in Missouri

Car accidents can occur anywhere and at any time. Yet, when a car accident occurs and one party is found to be negligent or faces a criminal charge related to purposely causing harm, injury or death to another, the door may be opened for families to pursue a wrongful death suit. Recently in Missouri, a man was arrested and charged with murder after hitting a 15-year-old boy who later died from his injuries.

Coming to and crossing intersections in a vehicle can be a vulnerable position for any motorist to be in, at any time of day.

Man could face wrongful death suit from hit and run accident

Missouri pedestrian died after car accident

Walking down a roadway or highway can be a dangerous activity any time of day. However, when it is nighttime, it can be even more dangerous for pedestrians to walk alongside the road. For one Missouri man, walking along the road led to his death after he was involved in a car accident.
