What Damages Can I Recover in a St. Louis Wrongful Death Claim?

After the death of a loved one, surviving family members can struggle to remain afloat financially. Medical bills and funeral costs may be overwhelming and families can find it difficult to make ends meet after losing a major source of income. To make matters worse, dependents of the deceased person may lose access to inheritance or college funds that would have remained theirs if their caretaker was still alive.

If the family of a deceased individual fails to file a wrongful death suit, they will be responsible for covering the previously mentioned expenses with their own money, which may not be enough. Fortunately, a strong wrongful death claim headed by a seasoned wrongful death attorney may have a strong chance of recovering some of these costs as damages. Burger Law's experienced wrongful death lawyers are dedicated to answering your questions and supporting you during your entire case. Learn more about what damages you can recoverin a wrongful death suit and how much money you could receive here.

  2. Non-economic: other damages that are not quantified, such as mental anguish, loss of guidance and loss of companionship

Is There a Damages Cap in Wrongful Death Claims?

Is There a Damages Cap in Missouri Wrongful Death Claims?

To understand the value of your claim and the total amount you are eligible to receive, you need a Missouri wrongful death lawyer who is familiar with Missouri wrongful death cases like yours and can determine the total value of your damages, including the non-economic damages.

When calculating these damages, you may be wondering if there is a maximum amount of damages allowed in a St. Louis or Missouri wrongful death case. In most cases, there is no limit to the amount of damages you and your family can receive for the wrongful death of your loved one in Missouri. This means that your wrongful death attorney can demand the full value of all of your damages, regardless of the total.

The one exception is in wrongful death cases due to medical malpractice. In Missouri, there are damage caps for noneconomic damages in all medical malpractice cases, including wrongful death. The current policy, established by Missouri Statute 538.205, sets the current maximum value for non-economic damages in a medical malpractice-related wrongful death case at $787,671 for the year 2022.

Regardless of the circumstances that caused the wrongful death of your loved one, you need to hire an experienced and dedicated wrongful death attorney from a reputable St. Louis law firm to fight for you and demand the full compensation to which you are entitled.

How Can I Prove My Wrongful Death Claim?

How Can I Prove My Wrongful Death Claim in St. Louis?

A wrongful death suit is a civil claim in Missouri state courts. As the plaintiff in a wrongful death case, you must demonstrate that the defendant owed your loved one a duty of care, and prove that their negligence in that duty caused your loved one's death. If these facts do not apply to your case or you fail to convince the defense or, if you go to trial, the judge and jury that these facts are present in your case, you will not be able to collect damages from the defendant.

In order to make sure your family has a legitimate claim, and for the best chances of winning a wrongful death suit and recovering damages for your claim, you need to talk to an experienced wrongful death lawyer in St. Louis right away. The lawyers of Burger Law are available and ready to help you and your family with your wrongful death claim today. In proving your wrongful death case, you must prove the following facts are true:

  1. The defendant owed the decedent a duty of care.

    You must be able to prove that the person you are filing the suit against was expected to keep your loved one safe. In a car accident, it is automatically accepted that motorists owe their fellow road users a duty to drive safely and do their part to keep other drivers, passengers, and pedestrians from harm. In a medical situation, doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals are supposed to treat their patients as effectively as possible while doing as little harm as possible. Consumer product manufacturers are supposed to release products that have minimal risk to users, and any dangers in using the product should be adequately disclosed. Wrongful deaths happen in all kinds of situations, and your wrongful death lawyer will help you determine and prove the duty of care the defendant owed your loved one.

  2. The defendant breached this duty of care.

    The next fact you must establish is that the defendant, who was supposed to keep your loved one safe, did something that violated that responsibility. This is where negligence comes in. In a car accident, driving drunk, driving distracted, speeding, failing to follow traffic signals, failing to slow down or use headlights in poor weather conditions are all examples of failing to do their part to keep travelers around them safe. This violation could be an action, something the defendant did or, on the other hand, something the defendant failed to do.

  3. This breach of duty caused your loved one's death.

    Now, you must prove fault. To have a wrongful death case, you have to prove that not only did the defendant do something to breach their duty of care, but that this negligent behavior actually caused the victim's death. In some cases, this is more difficult to prove than in others. Your wrongful death attorney will likely consult and get testimony from experts like medical professionals or coroners who can determine the cause of the death and how certain conditions and injuries impact a person's ability to survive. In some cases, the victim is killed immediately during the event, such as in a car accident where the victim is killed upon impact, while other times the victim suffers severe injuries and receives medical care but ultimately is not able to survive.

  4. The defendant's negligence caused damages.

    Finally, to win your wrongful death claim, you as the plaintiff must show how the defendant's behavior has affected you. Damages can be things like expenses (such as medical bills, funeral costs, and lost income from your family member's wages) or abstract effects like pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of companionship and support. A skilled wrongful death lawyer will calculate the complete value of your damages and negotiate appropriate financial compensation on your behalf. Burger Law's wrongful death attorneys have experience in wrongful death cases like yours and know how to value your damages and negotiate an excellent recovery.

Will My Family's Wrongful Death Case Have to Go to Trial?

Will My Family's Wrongful Death Case Have to Go to Trial in St. Louis?

Most personal injury and wrongful death cases are settled out of court, but several situations can make going to trial a wise decision. For example, if the negligent party is solely at fault, but the insurance company won't acknowledge the policyholder's fault, taking the case to trial allows the judge and jury to decide if damages should be awarded for expenses associated with the victim's death. While this can ensure that you recover compensation for your family member's wrongful death, taking a case to trial can be expensive, and often takes longer than cases that don't go to trial to recover a satisfactory settlement.

Depending on the circumstances of your family member's death, who the negligent party is, and if you have a wrongful death lawyer in St. Louis representing your family's case, taking a wrongful death case to trial can be incredibly beneficial. Fighting for your case in court ensures that your wrongful death claim isn't at the whims of the other party's insurance company, and in cases involving product liability or negligence by a large company, taking a case to trial could pave the way for a class-action lawsuit if the families of other victims decide to come forward.

How Long Do I Have to File a Wrongful Death Claim?

How Long Do I Have to File a Wrongful Death Claim in Missouri?

The wrongful death statute is different in all 50 states in the U.S., but most time limits for wrongful death claims are between 2-3 years after the accident. In Missouri, if someone is killed because another person broke the rules, Missouri Revised Statute 537.100 stipulates that the time limit for bringing a wrongful death claim is three years from the date of the victim's death.

When Can I File a Wrongful Death Claim?

When Can I File a Wrongful Death Claim in Missouri?

Wrongful death cases have several special considerations. In most cases, a wrongful death claim can only be filed by a child, spouse or parent/guardian of a deceased individual, and if the claimant is successful they may receive restitution for their financial losses.

Wrongful death suits can be filed under a myriad of circumstances. As long as a person is killed due to negligence or an intentional criminal act, most courts will hear a wrongful death case. Wrongful death claims are often filed in the wake of deaths caused by:

  • Fatal automobile accidents 
  • Defective or dangerous products 
  • Medical malpractice  
  • Occupational accidents 
  • Maritime and offshore accidents 
  • Criminal activity  

Even if a person is found not guilty by a criminal court, they can still be held financially responsible in civil court if a family chooses to file a wrongful death suit. This is because the burden of proof is not as great in civil court since the jury there can award monetary damages but cannot levy criminal charges.

Who Can Be Held Liable For Wrongful Death?

Who Can Be Held Liable For Wrongful Death in St. Louis and Missouri?

Accidents do happen, but when they are avoidable, individuals and organizations can be held legally liable if they did not take reasonable steps to prevent the accident from occurring. Wrongful death cases are frequently governed by a legal principle known as negligence. Individuals and organizations that do not take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of others are said to be negligent if their actions or inaction result in an accident.

When Can I Sue a Company or Manufacturer for Wrongful Death?

When Can I Sue a Company or Manufacturer for Wrongful Death in St. Louis, Missouri?

If a loved one has been killed or diagnosed with a terminal illness after using a product, you need to establish a connection between their use of the product, their illness, and the company. Proving product liability requires the following pieces of evidence:

  • Proof of purchase - copies of receipts or in workers' compensation cases, invoice records from your employer
  • Injuries caused by the product - past and present medical records from a physician
  • The product's defect - police and medical reports can prove that the accident was caused by the product's defect and are strong pieces of evidence in product liability claims
  • Proper use - that you were using the product as intended and following the manufacturer's instructions when using it
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Suit in?

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Suit in St. Louis and Missouri?

Generally, only a family member can file a claim, but there are some exceptions. Missouri Revised Statute §537.080 lays out a series of certain groups of people who can file a wrongful death claim after someone's death. These groups are listed in order of preference. In other words, if someone from the first group exists and has the capacity to file the claim, then they must do so. It is only if no one from the first group is available that someone from the second group can file. Likewise, someone from the third category can only file a wrongful death claim if nobody else from the first two groups is able to do so.

The groups of people who may file a wrongful death claim in Missouri are:

  1. The spouse, parent, or child of the decedent

    If the decedent has an able husband, wife, parent, or child, then they will have to file the wrongful death suit. If the decedent's children are deceased, then other direct descendants such as grandchildren may file.

  2. The siblings of the decedent

    If the decedent has no living parents, spouses, children, or grandchildren, then their sibling can file a wrongful death claim. As in the first category, if the siblings to the decedent have passed away but they have direct descendants such as children or grandchildren, then the descendants of the decedent's sibling may file.

  3. A court-appointed plaintiff ad litem

    If no family members are living or able to make the claim, Missouri courts may appoint a special individual to represent the estate of the decedent. This person must be requested by somebody who would be entitled to receive a share of the compensation awarded if they were to be successful in the wrongful death suit.

An experienced lawyer in St. Louis can help establish liability in your case, protect you and your family from the company's insurance agents, and recover a settlement for your damages in trial or with an out of court settlement.


How Is a Settlement Determined in a Wrongful Death Claim?

How Is a Settlement Determined in a St. Louis Wrongful Death Claim?

Settlements for wrongful death claims vary significantly, based on case-specific factors such as liability, the health of your loved one before an accident and other factors that determine a wrongful death settlement:

  • Your loved one's age
  • Pre-existing conditions
  • Liability in the accident that caused your loved one's death
  • Proof of the negligent party's fault
  • The victim's future earning capacity/income at the time of death
  • Medical bills that the victim incurred because of the negligent party
  • Funeral and burial expenses that the victim's family had to pay for out-of-pocket
  • Lost wages

While most wrongful death settlements are reached outside of court, some wrongful death cases end up going to trial. Burger Law's wrongful death attorneys are experienced trial lawyers who are not afraid to take the fight in front of a judge and jury if we have to.

  • Salary
  • Health insurance
  • 401k
  • Pension
  • Retirement benefits
Can You Sue Someone's Estate for Wrongful Death?

Can You Sue Someone's Estate for Wrongful Death in Missouri?

When a person dies, all of the property and assets that they possessed while alive are listed under the deceased's estate. An estate is represented by the personal representative of the deceased as defined by Missouri Revised Statute § 473.110, most often, the victim's spouse, child, or parents. Personal representatives are responsible for allocating the deceased's estate to the correct parties, including those listed in the person's will, and handling claims against the deceased's estate from debt collectors, attorneys, and other parties.

If your family is struggling with the death of a family member caused by another person's negligence, and you are wondering, "Can I sue the estate of a deceased person for wrongful death?" The answer is yes, but there are rules for suing a person's estate. When suing someone's estate, there are limitations on who can sue for wrongful death, how long a person has to sue an estate for damages, and elements that need to be present when suing an estate for wrongful death.

The statute of limitations for suing an estate is different in every state. In Missouri, the time limit for suing a person's estate for wrongful death is within six months of the estate going into probate, according to Missouri Revised Statute § 473.360. Probate is the process that an estate goes through before dispersing a person's will. During the first six months of probate, claims against a person's estate are assessed and either approved or denied. When making a wrongful death claim against a person's estate, it's essential to have proof of:

  • Your loved one's death (autopsy, police report, death certificate)
  • The estate holder's responsibility for your family member's death (police report, medical report, witnesses)
  • Your eligibility to sue for your loved one's wrongful death - a personal representative must be the victim's spouse, child, parent, or if none of these parties are available, the victim's sister or brother
  • Damages that your family incurred because of your family member's death

If you are thinking about suing someone's estate for wrongful death, you are going to need a lawyer. Suing an estate for wrongful death requires extensive knowledge of Missouri's legal process, wrongful death laws, and experience negotiating damages. Without an attorney by your side, you could miss the time frame for filing a wrongful death claim, risk having your claim denied, or recovering fewer damages for your wrongful death claim in St. Louis.
