Knowledgeable Missouri Lawyers Who Represent You After Wrongful Death Accidents of Loved Ones
Find justice with the aid of our Columbia wrongful death lawyers
There’s nothing easy about dealing with the death of a loved one. When that death was the direct or indirect result of someone else’s negligence, we believe the responsible party should be held accountable.
At Eng & Woods, Attorneys at Law, we have more than 100 years of combined legal experience in personal injury cases, and have a special passion for courtroom litigation. We take your case to trial and get the results you need to help sustain you in the future. We understand that no amount of money can make up for the loss of your loved one, but it is important to know that you have attorneys by your side who are willing to fight for you during your difficult time to hold the liable party accountable for your loved one’s death.
Our wrongful death lawyers in Columbia give you support when you need it most
Wrongful death cases are always difficult, simply due to their emotional nature. The first priority of your personal injury attorney is to support you in what is sure to be a very difficult time for you and your family. Once we understand the nature of the tragic event, we can begin to build your case.
- We analyze dependence. To bring a wrongful death lawsuit against another person or company, we must prove that you were dependent upon the deceased. If your loved one was the financial head of the household, or if they were the primary caretaker of the family, we may be able to obtain compensation.
- We look for precedent. Our attorneys are vigilant in their pursuit of evidence that could help you. We research safety standards, obtain the help of expert testifiers and investigate other wrongful death cases with similar circumstances.
- We move quickly. It is important to note that there is a statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim. The time frame for this statute of limitations begins from the time you became aware of the incident.
