How do I start a Wrongful Death Claim?

Wrongful Death Lawsuit gives families a means to seek reparations against those who have caused the passing of a loved one. A wrongful death suit allows family members to bring a case against the party responsible for the death of a family member, and dictates who can recover legally from these claims. So what does this mean? If your family member had lived, they would have been able to pursue a personal injury claim, and the responsible party would have been legally required to pay for the damages they caused.
In Missouri, wrongful death claims are dictated by Statute 537.090 which sets who can sue, what they can sue for, and how any recovery or settlement is dispersed and what liens can be set against it.
In Illinois, wrongful death suits are dictated by Statute 740 ILCS 180 – Wrongful Death Act.
These laws give you and your family the right to seek suit against those who caused the wrongful death of your loved one. Wrongful death suits are extremely damaging to any individual or business, and they may try to hide the evidence pertaining to the claim. Collection of this evidence as quickly as possible is paramount. An experienced Wrongful Death Lawyer in Cuba will know how to collect this evidence, how to depose the defendant, and how to ensure that those responsible for the death of your loved one are fully punished to the maximum extent of the law. If you have any questions about the process, what you can expect, or how our Cuba lawyers can help you, please call us at 1-314-542-2222, or use this form HERE. We can help your family get the justice, compensation, and recovery it deserves.
When can my Family Start a Wrongful Death Claim?
Wrongful Death Lawyer in Cuba, MO, 65453
As previously explained, a wrongful death claim can only be pursued after the passing of a family member, whereas, had they lived, they would have been able to sue the business or individual for the damages they were caused. There are several different instances where this is applicable. Here are a few of the wrongful death claims we’ve successfully taken on:
Truck Accident Wrongful Death Claim – In this claim, we held the business liable for the actions of their truck driver, and were able to secure an excellent recovery for our clients as well as handle the family’s probate matters so that their recovery was protected.
Medical Malpractice Wrongful Death Claim – In this suit, we showed that the doctor/provider didn’t take our client’s symptoms seriously and the tests they neglected to use to determine a prognosis for his symptoms.
Nursing Home Negligence Wrongful Death Claim – Injuries can often have other effects that cause other issues or even death years later. Had the accident not happened, the additional complications would have never arrisen. We held the nursing home liable for the injuries they caused, and the subsequent death of our client.
Wrongful Death due to Fentanyl – This drug, in large amounts, can be fatal. The company neglected to tell users of the patches that the patches could put potentially fatal levels of the drug into the bloodstream. We were able to prove that the company, Janssen Pharmaceuticals acted negligently, and were able to settle the claim for a large, confidential amount.
Opioid Overdose Wrongful Death Claim – Opioids are being overprescribed and over used in the US. Doctors often get kickbacks for prescribing opioids, and thus prescribe the dangerous drugs more often. These companies need to be punished to the fullest extent of the law for their actions. Here is a short video on the Misrepresentation of Opioids:
