Wrongful Death Lawyer in St. Louis
Death is one of the few things that are certain in life. But when caused by negligence, dealing with the aftermath is difficult and painful. Such deaths can leave families broken, and dreams shattered. At such a time, seeking closure becomes a priority. While we never truly get over our loved one's death, especially if caused by someone else's negligence, pursuing financial compensation can help cover bills left behind by the deceased and compensate you for the support the deceased would have offered had they been alive at that point or sometime in the future. Fill out our free case evaluation form today to learn more about how a Morgan and Morgan wrongful death lawyer in St. Louis might be able to help.

What Is Considered a Wrongful Death Case in St. Louis?
A wrongful death case in St. Louis and throughout Missouri is the kind of death that occurs due to the negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions of another individual, company, or entity. In such cases, the surviving family members may have the right to seek compensation for their losses.
When Should I Consider Hiring a Wrongful Death Lawyer?
You'll need legal representation from an experienced wrongful death lawyer if you have lost a loved one due to someone else's negligent or reckless actions. The same applies if you file a claim with the insurance company and they refuse to cooperate with you.
What Kind of Cases Does a Wrongful Death Lawyer Handle in St. Louis?
It all depends on the lawyer or injury firm you hire to represent you. One of the biggest advantages of working with Morgan and Morgan, America's largest injury firm, is that we have powerful legal resources to handle a wide range of cases under the umbrella of wrongful death.

How Can a Morgan and Morgan Wrongful Death Lawyer Help Me?
At Morgan and Morgan, once we've reviewed your case and established that you might have legal grounds to pursue compensation for your loved one's death, we will conduct a thorough investigation to build a strong case on your behalf, identify the liable parties, calculate damages, file a claim, negotiate with insurance companies or at-fault parties, and represent you in court if necessary.
Do I Need To Go to Court for a Wrongful Death Case?
Most of these cases are usually resolved through negotiations and settlements. But again, it hugely depends on the other party's willingness to settle. If they're uncooperative or if a fair settlement cannot be reached, your case may proceed to court. At Morgan and Morgan, we are always prepared for every possible scenario, whether it's about going to court or settling it behind closed doors.
What Is the Statute of Limitations for Wrongful Death Cases in St. Louis?
You have three years from the date of the deceased person's death to file a wrongful death claim. Failure to take legal action within this timeframe could result in losing your right to sue (if the deadline expires).
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in St. Louis?
Immediate family members such as spouses, children, and parents of the deceased person are usually eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In some cases, other dependents or beneficiaries may also be entitled to file a claim.
