Wrongful Death Lawyers in St. Louis, MO

Focused on Client Needs Since 1946


There is nothing more difficult than losing a loved one. The tragedy is compounded when the death was preventable and due to the negligence of others.

In wrongful death lawsuits, Gray Ritter Graham works to hold negligent parties responsible and obtain fair and just compensation on behalf of the victim’s surviving family members.

Wrongful Death Claims & Damages

If your loved one died due to another person’s negligence, Gray Ritter Graham, will investigate your case and diligently work to obtain financial compensation for your loss.

 Compensation for most wrongful death claims can cover such items as:

  • Medical bills
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost earnings for support of a child or spouse

Furthermore, when a loved one dies in a preventable accident, the surviving family members may suffer significant “noneconomic losses.” Compensation, then, may also be awarded for items such as pain and suffering and loss of companionship, guidance, and support.

How Our Wrongful Death Attorneys Can Help

The aftermath of a loved one’s death is extremely difficult to go through, especially when it was unexpected and caused by someone else. The family of the deceased faces the stress of trying to get things in order. Oftentimes, they do not get the time they need to grieve, and holding accountable those responsible may be, understandably, a secondary concern.

Insurance companies may try to take advantage of you during this difficult time. Gray Ritter Graham protects our clients’ interests and will investigate the circumstances of your loved one’s death, retain experts, gather evidence, and conduct depositions to determine who is legally responsible.

If your family needs help pursuing a wrongful death claim, call Gray Ritter Graham today to request a free consultation about possible legal action.
