Missouri civil laws give certain parties the right to seek financial recovery after someone’s negligence results in the death of a family member. To qualify for financial compensation after the death of a loved one, a plaintiff must have certain elements and evidence. First, the family must prove that the defendant (party allegedly responsible for the death) owed the deceased person a duty of care. Second, the plaintiff must show that the defendant breached this duty of care. A breach of duty can describe any of the following:
Any action or failure to act that falls outside the defendant’s realm of duty to the deceased could qualify as a breach of duty. Third, the family needs to show causation between the defendant’s breach of duty and the loved one’s fatal accident. Finally, the family must show that real damages resulted from the incident. The experienced wrongful death attorneys at Goldblatt + Singer know exactly how to handle St. Louis wrongful death claims to the best advantage of their clients.
