Common Types of Wrongful Death Cases
Unlike other negligence cases, wrongful death cases are created by statute – R.S.Mo. 537.090. Like other personal injury cases, though, an individual or a company must possess a duty of care to the individual who passed away and have breached that duty by behaving negligently or carelessly.
Wrongful death cases commonly involve:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Premises liability
- Product liability
Damages that can be recovered from a Missouri wrongful death claim:
- The value of the financial support which the decedent provided their loved ones;
- The value of the household services the family would have received in the future from the decedent; and
- The loss of the love, services, consortium, companionship, comfort, instruction, guidance, counsel, training, and support provided by the decedent.
