Wrongful Death Attorneys Working for You

State laws recognize that certain surviving family members have a rightful claim for losses suffered due to wrongful death. 

In Missouri and Kansas, wrongful death can occur as a result of:

  • Auto accidents

  • Truck accidents

  • Workplace accidents

  • Medical malpractice

  • Neglect or abuse

Losses you may recover can include:

  • Potential earnings (income) of the deceased
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of guidance and advice
  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • And more

The bottom line is that financial compensation can never truly make up for the loss of a loved one, but it can ease the burden and usher you along a path toward healing.
