Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Missouri
It can be incredibly difficult to get justice after losing a loved one in a pedestrian crash, especially if the crash was caused by another driver’s negligence. If you’ve lost a loved one in a fatal pedestrian crash in Missouri, here are some things you can do to try to get justice:
- Hire an experienced personal injury lawyer who has experience handling wrongful death claims arising from car crashes.
- File a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent driver and/or their insurance company.
- Seek damages for your losses, including funeral and burial expenses, loss of financial support, and loss of companionship.
- Hold the negligent driver accountable for their actions and help prevent future crashes from happening by sending a message that such behavior will not be tolerated.
No amount of money can ever truly compensate you for the loss of a loved one, but pursuing justice through the legal system can help you find some measure of closure and peace of mind knowing that the person responsible for your loved one’s death has been held accountable for their actions.
