Experienced in Wrongful Death Lawsuits

When a loved one’s death is caused by the negligence, recklessness or intentional act of another, Missouri law allows the victim’s family members to seek compensation from the wrongdoer. Since 1954, the wrongful death attorneys at Bruntrager & Billings have helped St. Louis-area families hold wrongdoers accountable for their carelessness or misdeeds.

A wrongful death lawsuit may arise from any of a variety of sources:

  • Auto accidents
  • Trucking accidents
  • Product liability
  • Medical malpractice
  • Railroad accidents
  • Slip-and-fall incidents
  • Motorcycle accidents

Although money can never replace a loved one, recovering compensation through the wrongful death statute can help a family make up for:

  • Lost income or future earnings
  • Lost pension or retirement benefits
  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of companionship

If the wrongful conduct was grossly negligent or intentional, the family may also be entitled to punitive damages. If you have lost a loved one recently as a result of the carelessness, negligence, recklessness or intentional act of another, it is important that you contact an experienced wrongful death attorney as soon as possible. Missouri law limits the time after a death in which a family may file suit. Moreover, important evidence may be destroyed or lost over time.

At Bruntrager & Billings, you will work directly with one of our partners to obtain justice for your case.
