Missouri law allows for a wrongful death claim to be made by the family members of a victim. There are specific laws that establish who has the standing to bring such a claim and what damages that can be sought. Accidents involving the death of a loved one are understandably difficult for the family to cope with. This is especially true when the death is the result of the negligent acts of another. Through the grief and hardship, pursuing a financial settlement is the furthest thing from your mind; however, it is extremely important to consult an attorney quickly. The time period in which you are allowed to make a claim may be shorter than other types of accident cases, and information regarding the accident must be gathered as quickly as possible. We can help you by providing the support you need and protecting the financial rights of your family.
Please remember, every injury claim has a statue of limitations. There is a limited period of time available in which to file your lawsuit. If you miss this window of opportunity, you cannot later bring a lawsuit and will be completely barred from pursuing a claim. This statutory time period varies depending on the type of case and particular fact pattern.
