Wrongful Death

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

Actions for wrongful death involve any situation where a person has been killed due to actions or inactions of another. In Missouri, wrongful death actions are statutory. A wrongful death is not a survival or transmitted right and does not belong to the deceased. Rather, wrongful death actions are governed by Missouri Revised Statutes Sections 537.080 through 537.100.
