After losing a loved one, you may be overcome by grief and overwhelmed, not knowing what to do next. Can you hold the party who caused your loved one’s death responsible? Can you file a wrongful death claim? These frequently asked questions will help you understand whether you may have a valid wrongful death claim, but be sure to consult with an attorney experienced in wrongful death about your specific situation.
In Missouri, a wrongful death is defined as: “the death of a person result[ing] from any act, conduct, occurrence, transaction, or circumstance which, if death had not ensued, would have entitled such person to recover damages in respect thereof.” (Missouri Statutes section 537.080) When the death of a loved one is due to a wrongful or negligent act by another, you may have a wrongful death claim.
On September 28, 2015, a wrongful death lawsuit, filed by a St. Louis woman against C.R. Bard, alleges that her husband’s death was due to complications with a Bard G2 IVC filter.
