The Experience You Need. The Attention You Deserve.
Grieving over the loss of a loved one is an emotional challenge, and the burden can be heavier when the cause of death was another person's reckless of negligent conduct. Surviving family members deserve compassion and justice, and the support of an experienced, caring wrongful death attorney.
The Noland Law Firm has considerable experience fighting for the rights of families who have lost loved ones due to negligence, malice or product liability in the Kansas City metropolitan area and northwest Missouri.
Grounds for a Wrongful Death Lawsuit
In order to pursue a wrongful death claim, it is necessary to show that the negligent or careless conduct of another person or entity caused or contributed to the death. These cases often arise as a result of automobile accidents, workplace accidents, or medical negligence.
If the death was caused by malice or intentional violence, a wrongful death lawsuit can also be brought against the responsible person(s). Lastly, a manufacturer or distributor of a defective or dangerous product that may have caused a loved one's death might be strictly liable.
Who can bring a wrongful death lawsuit?
In Missouri, a wrongful claim depends on a number of factors such as whether the victim was married or had children. Generally, people who are closely related to the victim can file a claim, including:
- A court-appointed guardian
Serving the Kansas City Community with Dignity and Compassion
The Noland Law Firm has the skills and resources that are needed to pursue a wrongful death case. A wrongful death attorney can help surviving family members navigate all the legal complexities associated with the deceased's estate, if necessary, and recover compensation for the full value of the victim's life.
The type of compensation you may be entitled to include funeral and burial expenses, medical bills, pain and suffering of the deceased before they died, loss of future income and future benefits such as medical benefits and retirement benefits. In addition, you may also be able to recover damages for loss of companionship as well as the support and guidance the victim may have provided.

We will fight to obtain a fair settlement from the insurance company, and if the insurer does not offer reasonable and adequate compensation, we will vigorously litigate the case in court.
