Dealing with the death of a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences in a person’s lifetime. But the grief and sense of loss can be compounded when the death was caused by another person’s or party’s negligence, carelessness, or malice.
People who were injured in accidents or incidents that were caused by others’ negligence are often eligible to file compensation claims for things like medical bills and lost wages. The same is true for surviving family members when their loved ones die due to preventable causes, including other people’s mistakes.
At Cofman Townsley, our St. Louis wrongful death attorneys have helped many grieving families get compensation for things like:
- Medical bills—Unfortunately, medical bills aren’t discharged when victims pass away. Instead, their bills are assigned to their loved ones, who may have difficulty paying them.
- Lost wages—Surviving family members lose support in a variety of ways when their loved ones die, including financial support. Wrongful death claims can help them recover some or all of their deceased loved ones’ wages.
- Funeral costs—Funeral and burial/cremation services are expensive, but they’re essential for many families after the death of loved ones. We can help you get compensation to help cover this important part of your family’s grieving process.
We know this is a difficult and sensitive time for your family, and you can count on us to treat you and your loved ones with the utmost respect and patience while you mourn your loss. Contact us today for a free consultation.
