Missouri Wrongful Death Attorney

The death of a close family member changes your entire life in an instant. Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy, but it is especially difficult when the death results from an accident caused by someone else’s negligence. Surviving family members are not only dealing with grief and emotional turmoil, but also may be facing serious economic difficulties if they relied on the deceased family member for financial support. If you have lost a loved one in an accident that was caused by the negligent or reckless conduct of another, you may be entitled to file suit for wrongful death. Although, nothing can make up for the loss of a loved one, wrongful death suits help family members seek justice for their loss and receive monetary compensation for the income the deceased would have earned if not for the wrongful conduct.

Wrongful death claims stem from a variety of different types of accidents, including medical malpractice, workplace accidents, and property owners’ failure to maintain premises in a safe condition. Some of the many types of accidents that result in wrongful death include:

  • Airplane, train, or bus accidents
  • Animal attacks
  • Defective products
  • Drowning accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Workplace accidents

The majority of wrongful death cases arise out of accidents caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another person or employer. If your loved one has been killed as a result of someone else’s negligence, contact the Missouri injury attorneys Hoffman & Gelfman Attorneys, P.C. at (314) 241-1020 today for a free initial consultation regarding your case.
