In the state of Missouri, wrongful death cases can be claimed against any party who has acted in a negligent manner that resulted in the untimely death of an individual. Even if the victim was engaging in activity that may have been considered dangerous and signed a waiver, a lawsuit may still be filed if it is proven that the liable party acted in gross negligence. When you work with Ferguson and Schieber Law Firm, our team of St. Joseph wrongful death attorneys will thoroughly review your case and ensure that the wrongful is brought to justice so that you receive the financial compensation that you deserve.
How to File a Claim for Wrongful Death
Wrongful death claims must be filed as soon as possible after the death of a loved one because the statute of limitations in Missouri grants only two years from the date of death to file a lawsuit against an individual. The compensation that you receive after a case is settled can help you pay for costly medical bills, funeral expenses and serve as restitution for your losses.
