• Wrongful Death – $1,500,000.00 Judgment

  • Wrongful death comes under the umbrella term of personal injury.  When the act of someone else results in death, Missouri Statute RSMo. 537.080 allows certain relatives to file a lawsuit.  If the defendant is determined to be liable for the death, the judge or jury may award such damages for the wrongful death as they “may deem fair and just for the death and loss thus occasioned, having regard to the pecuniary losses suffered by reason of the death, funeral expenses, and the reasonable value of the services, consortium, companionship, comfort, instruction, guidance, counsel, training, and support of which those on whose behalf suit may be brought have been deprived by reason of such death.”
