St. Louis Personal Injury Attorney | Wrongful DeathSt. Louis Personal Injury Attorney for Wrongful Death Claims

A loss of life is the most serious consequence of careless or negligent actions.
When a wrongful death occurs, the spouse and/or individual family members have a legal claim against the person or company responsible for the death of their loved one. Under the law, this is called a Wrongful Death Claim.

The surviving loved ones generally have a claim for the following type of damages:

ECONOMIC DAMAGES include the value of the financial contributions the victim would have made to the survivors if he or she were still contributing to the family, and may include:

  • Loss of the victim’s employment or expected earnings; and
  • Loss of benefits, such as pension plans or medical coverage;

NON-ECONOMIC DAMAGES account for the irreplaceable loss of the physical relationship of a loved one, and may include:

  • Loss of care and protection
  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Loss of guidance and support
  • Mental anguish and suffering
