Whether in Missouri or any other state, car crashes have the potential to disrupt the lives of all involved. No more is this true than when the accident causes the loss of life. A recent two-car crash in Fenton claimed the life of one of the drivers involved, and now his or her surviving family may elect to pursue a wrongful death claim if the other driver is deemed responsible for the collision.
The death of a child can be devastating to any family. Suddenly, the contagious laughter and love that filled the home is replaced by a void that cannot be filled. If the child had been diagnosed with a deadly disease, this loss is still devastating yet expected. However, when this death is the result of a misdiagnosis or other such preventable occurrence, the Missouri parents may decide that pursuing a wrongful death claim is the appropriate course of action.
Families often enjoy getting away and spending time together. Sometimes this involves a weekend get-away; other times, this involves an extended vacation. In either case, the Missouri family may decide to take a tour or participate in some other venture designed to appeal to vacationers. The expectation is that the family will enjoy their time together rather than fall victim to a wrongful death incident.
