St. Louis, MO Wrongful Death Lawyers
Helping Grieving Families Seek Justice After Tragedy in Missouri
When the unthinkable happens and your loved one dies in a preventable accident, it can feel as though your whole world has been turned upside down. It is hard enough to cope with the loss of someone close to you, and it may feel nearly impossible when someone else is at fault for that loss.
If someone else’s negligence led to the untimely death of a loved one, you may have the right to file suit against that negligent party and hold them accountable for what they have done. Further, we know that a person’s wrongful death typically brings both emotional and financial losses. Funeral expenses, loss of benefits (e.g. pension or medical coverage), loss of inheritance, etc. are likely to go hand in hand with the loss of the care, protection, guidance, nurturing, love, society, and companionship that your loved one provided.
DiPasquale Moore will help you navigate the path to justice, without burdening you with the day-to-day of the litigation process. It is our goal to resolve your wrongful death case in your favor, maximize your compensation, and ensure that your loved one’s memory is honored.

Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in St. Louis
A wrongful death lawsuit is essentially a personal injury lawsuit filed on behalf of someone who has died due to the negligence of another party. Thus, these lawsuits may be filed over intentional and unintentional acts that proved fatal, from crimes to traffic accidents, to medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, and other preventable accidents. You may also file suit if another’s negligence caused your loved one to fall ill or suffer an injury, which then led to their death.
Per state law, only certain individuals qualify to file a wrongful death lawsuit:
- Immediate family members, including life partners
- Extended family members
- Financial dependents
Eligible individuals can file suit either to recover their own losses related to their loved one’s death or the losses experienced by the loved one’s estate.
