More Traffic Fatalities Need Missouri Wrongful Death Lawyer

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released a report estimating traffic fatalities in the United States for the first quarter of 2022. Over 9500 people were killed in vehicle-related accidents, which is a 7% increase over the same time period the previous year.

The report goes on to say that we haven’t seen traffic fatalities that high in about twenty years. In spite of efforts to improve vehicle safety, US roadways are getting more and more deadly. A lot of driving safety records have been broken over the past few years and there are efforts underway attempting to reverse these trends with a variety of initiatives.

The US Department of Transportation wants to improve roads, vehicles, and educate people on the dangers of unsafe driving practices. Whether these initiatives will amount to anything substantial remains to be seen, but until there are significant changes, traffic deaths will continue.

That means thousands of families will be suffering the loss of loved ones. Many due to another person’s negligence.

Perhaps you or someone close to you has had to deal with losing a loved one in a car accident, motorcycle accident, or even a bike accident. If so, then you might be able to file a wrongful death claim.

Family members who are able to bring such a lawsuit include a spouse, children, parent, or possibly even a sibling if none of the other family members are able. A Missouri wrongful death lawyer can help you get compensation for the loss of a loved one due to the negligence of the other driver.

If you’ve given thought to filing a wrongful death lawsuit, but haven’t got around to it, it’s important to note that the statute of limitations in Missouri only gives you three years to do so. Otherwise, it’s too late.

No amount of money will ever bring back a loved one, but your family should be properly compensated for any financial and emotional hardships suffered as the result of a loved one’s death through the fault of someone else. You need the help of a Missouri wrongful death lawyer to get that compensation your family deserves.

Don’t delay. Reach out to The Krebs Law Firm as soon as possible, and let us help you find peace of mind and closure with your wrongful death case.
