- Funeral/burial costs

Having to endure economic hardship on top of grief is simply unacceptable.

Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim?
Generally speaking, an immediate family member such as a spouse, parent or child may file a wrongful death claim. In situations where the victim had no immediate family, an extended family member may be entitled to damages.
There are also statutes of limitations in wrongful death claims in Kansas and Missouri, which limit the amount of time surviving family members have to file a claim. At Schmitt Mulhern, LLC, we fight vigorously on behalf of families who have lost a loved one, working to recover both economic and noneconomic losses.
