How Can I Prove Wrongful Death?

To prove a wrongful death, it must be shown that:
  • The actions of the defendant in some way contributed to the untimely death of another;
  • The defendant’s actions were negligent and can be considered liable for the victim’s death;
  • The deceased has surviving relatives that are affected by this loss; and
  • Monetary damages can be associated with this death.

Types of Wrongful Death Cases in Missouri and Kansas

Common wrongful deaths include deaths caused by: Gathering the information you need to make a claim can be exhausting to do on your own. DiPasquale Moore can provide you with the resources and representation you need.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

You may have a wrongful death lawsuit on your hands if your family member was killed in a preventable accident due to the reckless behavior, oversight, or negligence of another person. This is true even if your loved one was severely injured in an accident or made ill and did not die right away. In fact, cases where a person is injured or made ill but does not die immediately tend to be far more costly to that person’s family and typically result in a great deal more pain and suffering. However, not just anyone who experiences emotional harm in such cases can sue for wrongful death. In order to file a wrongful death claim, you must be one of the following:
  • A member of the victim’s immediate family, including life partners
  • A member of the victim’s extended family
  • A financial dependent of the victim
Our team of compassionate, knowledgeable wrongful death attorneys in Kansas City, MO can help you take legal action against the parties responsible for your loved one’s suffering and death. The sooner you take the first steps, the better your chances are of recovering the compensation you deserve.

What damages can be claimed in wrongful death cases?

The damages that can be sought in wrongful death cases include both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages cover financial losses that the deceased person’s family suffered from. In contrast, non-economic damages pay the victim or victims for the emotional losses that occurred. You may receive compensation for damages such as the following:
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of guidance
  • Loss of support

Can I Sue for Personal Injury and Wrongful Death?

Personal injury lawsuits are a means of recovering damages after being seriously injured due to the negligence of another person. Arguably, the worst consequence one can suffer due to another person’s reckless behavior is an unnecessary loss of life. Though they deal with an elevated category of bodily harm and suffering, wrongful death claims are still considered to be a type of personal injury. This is why you need not file both a personal injury and wrongful death claim if you wish to levy punitive measures against responsible parties and be compensated for expenses related to the injury and death of a loved one. A solid wrongful death lawsuit ought to be sufficient to help you work toward receiving appropriate compensation and making amends for the damages the liable party has caused.
