Kansas City Wrongful Death Lawyer

Missouri Fatal Accident Attorney

Helping Survivors Recover from the Loss

It's always a shock to lose a loved one suddenly, and even harder to cope with a death that didn't need to happen. A wrongful death lawsuit doesn't bring back the person, doesn't answer the "why." It is a means to hold the negligent party accountable and provide comfort and financial support to the survivors.

Carter Law Offices provides compassionate counsel and aggressive representation to grieving families in the greater Kansas City area. We have brought wrongful death actions in a wide range of cases:

  • Nursing home negligence
  • Medical malpractice
  • Motor vehicle crashes
  • Railroad crossing accidents
  • Plane crashes
  • Falling accidents
  • Other fatal injury

Compensation in Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Doug Carter is a veteran trial attorney with a lengthy record of favorable outcomes in representing plaintiffs. Our legal team includes a registered nurse who can help uncover the negligence that caused the death. Our medical knowledge also helps families understand what happened.

In a wrongful death suit, we seek compensation for the measurable losses — medical treatment, funeral expenses and projected earnings. We also make a case for non-economic damages — the value of lost companionship, consortium and contributions to the family, and an amount for the emotional suffering of those left behind.

Wrongful death cases often settle out of court, but not before a lawsuit is brought. As in any litigation, we know that our thorough documentation of claims and proven results at trial are the surest road to a favorable settlement.
