Wrongful Death Lawyers In Kansas City
In the tragic event that you lose a family member to a fatal accident,
you should know two important facts:
personal injury lawsuit may still be brought by the person's estate to recover damages
for injuries and suffering that occurred before death.
- A separate wrongful death action may be brought by the person's estate
to get compensation for loss of financial support, burial expenses, loss
of anticipated earnings and loss of an anticipated inheritance.
The wrongful death action is brought by the personal representative (or
executor) of the decedent's estate on behalf of any surviving children
and spouse, and sometimes on behalf of surviving parents or other dependents.
If you have lost a loved one due to a wrongful death, contact a Kansas
City personal injury lawyer at Martin & Wallentine in order to obtain
crucial information about your legal options. Their attorneys have 25
years experience helping obtain justice for those left behind following

Compassionate Legal Representation In Wrongful Death Actions
It is never easy when a loved one dies. When that death is premature, and
caused by someone else's
negligence or recklessness, the grief and anger can be overwhelming. Many surviving
family members find a degree of comfort in the knowledge that someone
will be held financially responsible for their loved one's death.
The firm's attorneys understand this and take their roles in wrongful
death cases very serious. At the same time-from a practical point of view-the
eventual settlement or jury verdict in a wrongful death case is often
very welcome to the surviving family members, who may have been left without
a wage-earner or the financial support expected from a parent.
