What Are The Attorney Fees In A Missouri Wrongful Death Case?

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.

In a Missouri wrongful death case, at least if handled by an experienced wrongful death lawyer, the fee is contingent on the client getting a money settlement or award at trial.  The client normally pays no fee up front.  The attorney receives no payment if there is no monetary recovery.

The contingency fee can vary depending on the facts, complexity, and stage of the case.  If the case is settled, the fee must be approved as part of the required court approval of a wrongful death claim.

The attorney fee does not encompass the costs of prosecuting suit, if necessary.  The costs can be substantial, especially if liability is disputed and it proceeds beyond early settlement.  However, most wrongful death attorneys will pay all costs and expenses, subject to being reimbursed without interest.

If you have lost a loved one due to a wrongful death and would like to discuss attorney fees or any other aspect of the wrongful death laws in Missouri or Illinois, please call my office at (314) 872-2120 get professional guidance.
