Can I File a Wrongful Death Claim?

In order to be successful in your wrongful death claim and to receive the financial support you need to take care of your loved one's final expenses and continue to meet the daily needs of your family, you must meet the requirements of a wrongful death claim in your state.

To understand if you have a legitimate wrongful death claim, you must:

  • Meet Missouri or Illinois laws on who can file a wrongful suit, depending on where or what state the life-ending accident took place.

    Missouri law gives certain types of family members priority in filing a wrongful death suit. If available, the spouse, parents, children, or grandchildren must be the ones to file. The next preference goes to siblings. For wrongful death victims without any able family members from either of these groups, the court may appoint someone to file. In Illinois, the court appoints one person who acts as the representative to the beneficiaries. This person is the one named in the suit, but the court will approve the funds that each living relative, spouse, or other next of kin is to receive from the settlement. If you are unsure whether you are, according to state law, able to file the suit in your state, discuss your case with a wrongful death attorney in Anna, IL now.

  • Get your Anna, IL wrongful death claim filed in Missouri or Illinois court within the statute of limitations, or deadline.

Realistically, two or three years can go by very quickly. So it is essential that you speak to a Anna, IL wrongful death attorney right away after losing your loved one.

  • Meet all the requirements for proving negligence and fault for a wrongful death case.

    To qualify as a wrongful death case in Missouri or Illinois, certain facts must be true. You must be able to prove that:

    1. The defendant had a duty to your loved one to reasonably keep them safe
    2. The defendant failed that duty by something they did or did not do
    3. It was this breach that caused the death of your family member
    4. As the plaintiff in the wrongful death case, you and your deceased family member have experienced damages as a result of the breach of duty
