How to Prove a Fatal Auto Accident Is Also a Missouri Wrongful Death

While you’ve always recognized the dangers of fatal Missouri car crashes, you never thought that your family would suffer such a tragedy. Now, you are left with many questions. You likely want to know why the accident happened and whether you can make a legal recovery for the unimaginable harm that has been done to your family.

All Fatal Car Crashes Are Tragic, but They Are Not All Wrongful Deaths

In order for a fatal auto accident to result in an actionable Missouri wrongful death lawsuit, certain legal criteria must be met. Specifically:

  • A driver must owe the person who died a duty of care
  • The driver must have breached that duty of care of by failing to act like a reasonable person would in similar circumstances
  • The breach of the duty of care must have resulted in your loved one’s death, which would not have occurred but for the driver’s actions or inactions
  • You, or the plaintiff in the Missouri wrongful death case, must be able to recover damages

Without more information about the accident and a better understanding of Missouri wrongful death law, it can be difficult to know if you have a possible case.
