Wrongful Death Attorneys in Chesterfield, MO
Statewide Advocates in Missouri Wrongful Death Litigation
A wrongful death lawsuit is a claim against an organization or individual whose negligence or misconduct resulted in a death. Wrongful death lawsuits are typically brought by surviving spouses, children, or other close relatives of the victim, but may also be brought by business partners and other parties who suffered loss because of the death.
Wrongful death lawsuits give families an opportunity to recover money for lost earnings, medical bills, and lost affection after losing a loved one in an accident caused by somebody else’s negligence. Winning a wrongful death claim won’t return your family member, but the compensation can help your family get back on a firm financial and emotional foundation.

In order for a wrongful death lawsuit to be considered by the courts, the death must have been the result of negligence, misconduct, or a criminal act, even if there was no intent to cause harm. Someone else or an organization, like a company or corporation, may be liable for your loved one’s death even though they did not intend for the death to occur. The most important factor is whether or not their actions caused your loved one’s death.
If you are a dependent party of a person who has died in a fatal accident, you may be eligible to recover damages in a wrongful death claim.
