Understanding Fatal Car Accident Claims in Missouri

Fatal car accidents are devastating events that can leave families shattered both emotionally and financially. These accidents can be a result of a variety of factors including negligence, drunk driving, distracted driving, and more. 

When it comes to understanding fatal car accident claims, there are a couple of key points to keep in mind.  

  • A three-year statute of limitations applies to all wrongful death cases for car accidents. That means that generally a case asserting a wrongful death claim must be filed on or before three years from the date of the death. The case does not have to be resolved within 3 years of the death, but the lawsuit needs to be filed in the appropriate court within 3 years submitted and in process.  
  • Missouri is a “pure comparative negligence” state which means that each party contributing to cause an accident can be assigned a percentage of the fault. For example, if it was determined that the party seeking damages was determined to be 10% at fault, then that party could recover only 90% of their damages from the party against whom damages are sought.   

Compensation for Damages and Losses in a Fatal Car Accident

Losses from the death of a loved one are especially difficult to grieve. While monetary compensation cannot erase this pain, it can help alleviate financial pressures for those who are grieving. Compensation for direct damages does not have a maximum, however “non-economic” damages are capped at $700,000 in Missouri. You are able to pursue compensation for damages including but not limited to: 

  • Medical expenses 
  • Loss of income and future wages 
  • Emotional suffering 
  • Damage to cars, parts, etc. 
  • Burial and funeral costs.
