Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Missouri?
In Missouri, there are specific rules regarding who may file a wrongful death lawsuit. If the victim leaves behind a spouse, children, or grandchildren, they would have priority. The victim’s parents may also be entitled to bring a claim. If the victim has no surviving spouse, children, grandchildren, or parents, then siblings of the deceased would be entitled to seek damages. If there are no surviving brothers or sisters, the personal representative of the victim’s estate would be able to file a claim.
When filing a wrongful death lawsuit, you may be able to seek damages for:
- Costs associated with the victim’s funeral/burial
- Medical bills related to the victim’s injuries or illness
- Wages and benefits the victim likely would have earned
- Pain and suffering experienced by the victim prior to death
- Loss of companionship, comfort, guidance, support, etc.
How Long Do I Have to File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
In the state of Missouri, all wrongful death cases are subject to a time limit—known as the statute of limitations. This means that your lawsuit must be filed within three years of your loved one's death. If you fail to take action before this deadline expires, there is a good chance your case will be thrown out. For this reason, we encourage you to get started on this process as soon as possible. When you call the professionals at Klenofsky Law Firm, we can help you understand your options.
