Loss of a loved one can be very painful and even traumatic to the surviving spouse and/or family. This painful time may hinder your judgment and leave you not considering options in how to deal with those responsible for the negligence of your lost loved one. You and other family members may be entitled to damages.
Missouri law provides that wrongful death damages include the following:
- Costs of burial and funeral expenses
- Pain and suffering of the deceased prior to death
- Reasonable value of the services, companionship, comfort, guidance, training, and support from the deceased.
