St. Louis Wrongful Death Attorney

Compensation for the Loss of a Loved One

When the life of a family member is unintentionally ended because of the misconduct of another, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim. It is devastating to lose a loved one, but it is far worse when the death is caused by the negligent, careless or reckless actions of another person. In addition to the tragic loss, the emotional upheaval and the grief of the situation, you may also be struggling to replace your loved one's economic contributions to the family. This is not a situation that you should have to face on your own. While life will never be the same, you owe it to yourself and your family to seek justice and fair compensation by retaining the services of an attorney who can help you file a wrongful death claim.

No amount of money can make up for the loss of a loved one. You can, however, claim financial compensation to pay for any medical treatment which your family member received for the fatal injury, as well as for funeral and burial expenses. You could even receive economic damages to replace the income and other contributions which the decedent would have made to your family. The team at Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC can stand by you with compassion while aggressively fighting for your rights in the case. We understand what a terrible experience this must be for you, and want to help you recover the compensation you deserve and need to move on in life.
