Wrongful Death

Don’t Let the Death of a Loved One Be the Final Word

Losing someone you love can change your life, especially when you never saw it coming and someone else is to blame. Not only have you lost the love and companionship of that person before you were ready to say goodbye, you may also soon experience financial distress as a result. Your family may have lost a provider and you may be facing expensive medical bills that your loved one incurred before they passed away.

At Ryan R. Cox & Associates, we understand the significant emotional and financial stress that can result when you lose a family member to someone else’s negligence. While we can’t take away your pain and sense of loss, we can lessen your financial burden by demanding the compensation you deserve in court.

We handle and have experience in all varieties of wrongful death claims throughout Missouri, including but not limited to:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Workplace fatalities
  • Premises liability
  • Medical malpractice
  • Infant deaths

Our wrongful death law firm has been acclaimed for achieving superior results for our clients. We have worked on cases involving motor vehicle fatalities, workplace accidents, and general negligence, all with a persistence and dedication that has resulted in the National Trial Lawyers Association naming Ryan R. Cox one of the top 100 personal injury lawyers in Missouri.

Wrongful death lawsuits can be difficult and emotionally devastating, which may make you hesitant about bringing the matter to court. However, it is critical that your claim is filed as soon as possible to ensure that all evidence is still fresh, the circumstances are thoroughly investigated, and all responsible individuals or entities are accurately identified. In Missouri, you generally only have three years to file suit in court, but delays can cause problems with your case.

We understand that you may have a lot of questions about who is eligible to seek compensation in Missouri as well as what the process entails, so we have created a wrongful death Q&A that will give you most of the information you need.

If you’re worried about the cost of pursuing a claim, please be aware that Ryan R. Cox & Associates handles all cases on a contingency fee basis. If we do not win, you owe us nothing. If you do not receive compensation, neither do we. It’s as simple as that. We will not chase you with statements and invoices as you and your family rebuild your lives.
