Providing grieving families with dedicated service

I know the profound impact the loss of your loved one has had on your life, which is why I devote substantial resources to every wrongful death case I take. I employ private investigators and work with expert witnesses to ensure every case receives the attention and resources it deserves. I carefully collect and preserve evidence from accident scenes, and I seek out any witnesses to obtain testimonies. I explore all options when building your case to make certain you receive the maximum compensation possible under Missouri law.

Types of compensation in a wrongful death claim

The damages you receive in a wrongful death lawsuit depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of the accident and your loved one’s suffering prior to passing. I help clients receive compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance
