We Fight Hard For Survivor Rights in Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Unfortunately, most insurance companies are less than sympathetic when it comes to giving grieving families compensation. As a survivor, you and your family may be entitled to compensation from the person who caused the loss of life.
Insurance companies do not want you to know your rights so that they do not have to pay you the full and fair value for the claim. In addition to compensation for economic losses, you may also be eligible to receive non-economic compensation. You may also be entitled to compensation from other third parties who played a role in the wrongful death.
With help from a skilled wrongful death lawyer, you can have confidence knowing that you are getting every penny you deserve after the death of your loved one.
Here are some of the types of damages you may be compensated for in a wrongful death claim:
- Loss of income
- Medical expenses
- Loss of love and companionship
- Reasonable expenses for funerals or burials
- Pain, grief, or mental anguish as a result of the loss
Determining the value of a wrongful death claim in Missouri can be very complex. It may also be enormously difficult to think about while grieving the loss of your loved one. This is usually where smart victims make mistakes and trust the settlement offer given by the insurance companies. With an aggressive wrongful death attorney on your side, you can get the compensation you are entitled to after a traumatic event.
Don't Wait to File Your Claim
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 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 statute 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 a particular fact pattern. In Missouri, the statute of limitations for wrongful death cases is three years.
