After a loved one is killed, the last thing a family wants to think about is a lawyer - but in many cases they are going to need one. Rick Koenig can help.
Rick Koenig is a Sedalia personal injury attorney who is dedicated to handling personal injury, auto accidents and wrongful death. Because he keeps his practice focused, he is well aware of the complexities of Missouri law on the matter.
Wrongful death is a suit filed when a person or company's negligent or intentional actions caused a death - when they did not intend to kill somebody, but their actions caused it anyway. In Missouri, there are limitations on who may file - generally, it must be a close relative, with priority given to the spouse, children, or grandchildren, or the parents in the case of a child. If none of these people survive, the case may be brought by siblings or in some cases by a representative of the estate.
Families can sue for damages to cover funeral expenses, medical bills, loss of income, loss of "companionship" and pain and suffering. In some cases they may be able to recover the value of child or elder care. Non-economic damages (companionship or pain and suffering) are capped at $350,000 for medical malpractice.
The statute of limitations is three years - meaning it is vitally important to start the process right away, as it can take a long time to get a case heard. The family should contact a qualified lawyer right away.
Rick Koenig can bring his thirty plus years of experience to the family's case, and he understands the complexity of the law and system. Initial consultations are always free, and he will honestly tell a potential client whether the case is worth pursuing.
Families who have experienced a loss due to somebody else's negligence should call Rick Koenig to schedule a consultation today. The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely upon advertisement.
