Damages In A Wrongful Death Case In Missouri

DEAN LAW - HOME OF THE
29% PERSONAL INJURY CONTINGENCY FEE

You have legal rights.

You need the services of an experienced attorney
in these fields to even the playing field against
powerful insurance companies or the government.

Damages in a wrongful death case are often quite different than in a typical personal injury case.  In a traditional personal injury case, the plaintiff is usually personally physically and economically damaged.  Of course, in a wrongful death case, the person directly physically injured is regrettably, deceased.  If the deceased suffered pain from the time of his/her injury and the death, an award for suffering is proper.  However, damages for grief or bereavement are not recoverable.   Thus, the plaintiff(s) (such as a surviving spouse, child, or parent of the deceased) must be able to articulate some of the following:

1.  What hardships have you suffered due to the loved one's death?;

a.  What are the financial hardships (such as loss of income, medical expenses, funeral expenses, household services, etc....?)

b.  What are the non-economic losses--such as the deceased companionship, instruction/guidance (especially if a parent), the impact of the loved one's death on family activities/traditions?

If you live in the Missouri or Illinois and have lost a family member and want to investigate the potential of a wrongful death lawsuit, call my office at (314) 872-2120 or 1-800-431-3212 to get professional guidance.
