Wrongful Death Claims in St. Louis

Legal Recourse for Families of Medical Malpractice Victims

When a treatment or surgery results in the death of a loved one, it is bound to be a very difficult and trying time in your life. Though sometimes a person's own fragile or compromised health can be the cause, when negligent actions or inactions during a medical procedure that lead to death, it is classified as "wrongful death." A wrongful death victim's spouse and immediate family are eligible to seek compensation for the medical bills, loss of wages and benefits, decreased financial security, funeral costs, emotional pain and suffering and loss of companionship. A caring personal injury lawyer can help guide you through this harrowing and confusing time, ensuring that your needs and interests are met.
