There is no price tag on the devastation of losing a loved one due to someone else's negligence. The law recognizes the loss of a loved one and provides means to protect the spouse, children and parents of the deceased. An experienced wrongful death lawyer will advocate for you.
Wrongful death is the term used when someone dies because of another's carelessness. They are civil cases, not criminal. Examples of wrongful death include:
- A pedestrian killed in a drunk driving car accident
- Railroad accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home abuse
- Construction site injuries
In Kansas, you generally must file a wrongful death case within two years of the date of the death. In Missouri, a claim generally must be filed in three years, but it must be filed in two years if the death involved medical negligence.
