Wrongful Deaths In The United States

According to the National Safety Council (NSC), preventable-injury-related death occurs almost every two minutes in the United States.

The NSC further examined the odds Americans have of dying from specific causes related to preventable deaths. Here is what they discovered:

  • 1 in 19 individuals dies from a preventable cause of death
  • 1 in 93 individuals dies from a motor vehicle crash
  • 1 in 98 individuals dies from a slip and fall
  • 1 in 208 individuals dies from a gun assault
  • 1 in 485 individuals dies from a pedestrian incident
  • 1 in 747 individuals dies from a motorcycle accident

These shocking statistics can illustrate how vulnerable we all are to these situations, especially a death caused by a third party’s negligence.

How Long Do You Have To File A Wrongful Death Claim?

The statute of limitations for wrongful death suits is three years after the death occurred, which differs from the standard statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Missouri.

While there are many classes of people that can file a wrongful death case in Missouri, generally, only family members are first eligible to bring wrongful death action. If there is no eligible representative for the case, the court may choose to appoint a plaintiff ad litem who satisfies certain conditions under Revised Statutes of Missouri 537.080.

Understanding Damages In A Florissant Wrongful Death Case

  • Loss of Consortium
  • And more
