Unfortunately, fatal accidents happen every day. Rose Law helps families who have lost a loved one. In both Kansas and Missouri, the law is specific about who can bring a claim for wrongful death damages. Under Missouri statute 537.080.1, if someone dies because of the negligent acts of another person, then the deceased’s spouse, children, and parents have first priority in bringing a wrongful death claim.
In Kansas, under Kansas statute 60-1902, the deceased person’s heirs at law have the right to bring a wrongful death lawsuit, which means that the person’s spouse and children have first priority in bringing a wrongful death claim.
If you are considering filing a wrongful death claim, you will need to understand the process and how the law may apply. Ultimately, a successful wrongful death claim will either be taken all the way to trial or a court will have to approve any settlement. So it is definitely beneficial to have a lawyer on your side.
Rose Law handles wrongful death claims on a contingency basis, which means that we will cover all the costs of investigating and developing your case, and you will not pay any attorney’s fees unless you receive money for your claim.
