ST LOUIS WRONGFUL DEATH ATTORNEY

There is probably nothing more traumatic than dealing with the death of a loved one. This trauma can be even more devastating if the loss was due to the negligence or wrongful actions of someone other than the one you have lost. If a family member has suffered a tragic death due to the fault of someone else, contact an experienced Wrongful Death Attorney.

Wrongful death actions can arise from various causes in which another person is at fault, such as automobile accidents, death at the workplace, unsafe and defective products, slip/trip and falls, and hazardous conditions on property.

Some of the damages that can be pursued in a wrongful death action may include:

  • Medical and burial expenses
  • Loss of society, enjoyment and consortium of the decedent
  • Loss of potential/future earnings
  • Lost benefits (such as retirement benefits)
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Punitive damages (to punish the wrongdoer if his acts were intentional)

Nothing can replace your family member. But you are entitled to the best the legal system can provide. The reason for the death may also have wider implications in that, if remedied, no one else will ever suffer the same consequence.

You may have many question following a wrongful death, such as, how do you bring a wrongful death lawsuit? Do I have a viable case? What compensation am I entitled to for my loss?

My name is Mark Dean, and I am a St. Louis Wrongful Death Attorney, handling wrongful death cases throughout the state of Missouri and Illinois. I have the answer to your questions and I know how to protect your rights.

The last thing a spouse, father or mother, should be having to deal with is an insurance company who, sadly, has one interest at heart ‒ the insurance company’s bottom line. Because insurance companies often defend these cases aggressively due to the amount at stake, we focus on removing the burden a heartless company can have on a family so they can properly grieve their tragic loss.

And we do so at a fair, and often reduced contingency rate for these types of cases.

If you have suffered the loss of a family member or loved one because of someone else’s negligence call The Law Offices of Mark Dean at (314) 675-0000 today for a free audit.

I offer more than a “free consultation.” I will answer your questions and investigate the merits of a possible case at no charge to you.

I urge you to contact an experienced wrongful death lawyer in St Louis today.
