After the death of a loved one, the last thing you are thinking about are legal formalities. After a family member is killed in an unexpected accident, you are likely arranging a funeral, trying to deal with strong emotions, and wondering how you will go on without your loved one.
Unfortunately, as a St. Louis Wrongful Death Attorney, these types of situations are all too common to me. Car accidents, workplace injuries, or malpractice happens every day. When someone’s negligent behavior kills another person, wrongful death may have occurred.
Our firm understands that from the moment a wrongful death occurs, the family of the victim has legal rights. While you are mourning the death of your loved one, we can work on your behalf to exercise those rights. Through a wrongful death suit, you can receive compensation for lost wages, funeral costs, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship, among others. This compensation can help relieve some of the financial stress created by the accident and the person’s death.
