Wrongful death action may follow criminal charges

One factor to possibly consider in evaluating whether a civil action should be brought as a result of a fatal accident is whether police filed criminal charges against one of the drivers involved. This determination can assist the victim's family in determining whether they wish to file a wrongful death action in a Missouri civil court in order for them to seek compensatory and possibly other damages permitted under our state laws. In a recent fatal accident, a man has been criminally charged for being involved in an accident that killed a 9-year-old boy, though it is as yet unclear if the parents of the child are considering a civil lawsuit as well.
