St. Charles County Wrongful Death Attorneys

Wrongful Death Claim

When someone is killed in St. Charles County as a result of someone else’s negligence, the victim’s family may be able to pursue financial compensation for their loss. A wrongful death claim is a civil lawsuit that may be filed by a fatally injured victim’s family. Wrongful death in St. Charles County may be caused by auto accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse or assaults. While an at-fault party may face criminal charges in connection with the death, he or she could also be held civilly liable for the wrongful death of the victim.

Car accidents are one of the major causes of wrongful death in St. Charles County. Not all fatal car accidents, however, result in valid wrongful death claims. It must be proven that the at-fault driver was negligent in some way. For example, when a driver is speeding, drunk, distracted, fatigued or reckless, he or she is driving negligently.

St. Charles County car crashes are not the only type of fatal accidents that may result in a wrongful death. As long as negligence plays a part, a death may be considered wrongful. Other causes of wrongful death include:

  • Slip and fall accidents on dangerous properties

  • Criminal acts
  • Medical malpractice
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • House fires involving negligent property owners
