Wrongful Deaths in Granite City
Wrongful death is a death that is caused by the action, inaction, or negligence of a person or business. In Missouri, wrongful death is defined as “the death of a person result[ing] from any act, conduct, occurrence, transaction or circumstance which, if death had not ensued, would have entitled such person to recover damages in respect thereof.” Wrongful deaths can include circumstances such as a person killed by a driver who ran a red light, a passenger who dies due to negligence on the part of the driver, or a doctor making a mistake that causes the death of their patient.
When people die unexpectedly, they often leave behind devastated loved ones. In many cases, families who seek justice with the help of a wrongful death attorney in Missouri are successful in obtaining the financial compensation to which they are entitled.
