Experienced Wrongful Death Legal Counsel
The Roberts Law Firm, P.C. works to ensure that the responsible parties are held financially responsible for the tragic loss of life to the maximum extent of the law. This financial responsibility includes payment of damages for financial compensation to allow the family to adapt to the loss of income, companionship, death, and burial expenses and the financial future of those who were touched by the tragedy.
Our Chesterfield wrongful death lawyers represent spouses, children, and parents struck by the tragic loss of a family member. If a family member has been killed in a truck or tractor trailer accident, the firm provides legal counsel tailored to ensure maximum recovery for each particular wrongful death case that it handles. A wrongful death claim is the only way under Missouri law to provide the family of the deceased with some form of justice and compensation and allow for the appropriate penalty and punishment for the party who caused the accident.
Damages in Wrongful Death Cases Under Missouri Law
The full measure of damages in a wrongful death claim encompasses economic damages that measure the complete future lost income of the deceased through what is commonly referred to as the “present value” of economic damages. This measure encompasses the full projected lifetime income of the deceased. Damages under Missouri law in wrongful death claims also must measure the full value of the loss of human life and the meaning of that loss from the perspective of those left to grieve and remember the value of the deceased prior to the tragedy. These losses and harms include compensation for the loss of companionship, affection and support that would have been received from the deceased but for the loss.
