The Law Can Make Life Easier for the Families of Fatal Truck Accident Vicitms

Losing a loved one in a fatal accident is one of the worst experiences anyone can go through. Coping with a sudden loss is incredibly difficult in any event. It can lead to feelings of shock and confusion, and can cause intense sadness or depression. Missouri Statute Section 537.080 allows for family members of a deceased person to file suit for wrongful death. Eligible family members generally include the deceased person’s spouse or children, but some other relatives may be compensated as well. The family has two basic types of damages it can collect. First, the family can essentially stand in the shoes of their lost loved one and collect damages that he or she could have collected, such as repayment for hospital bills. The family can also collect other damages listed in Missouri Statute Section 537.090, which include funeral expenses, companionship, comfort, instruction, guidance, counsel, training, and support. Grief and bereavement are not usually recoverable.

It can be difficult for a family that has just been through a terrible loss to sit down and try to quantify the damages they have suffered. That is why an experienced lawyer is important. A good lawyer can knows where to look for evidence establishing the various available types of damages allowed for a wrongful death suit under Missouri Law.

Perhaps the most common measure of damages from a fatal truck accident is lost value of services. This generally just the lost estimated lifetime earnings of the person who passed away. In the case of a stay-at-home parent, the person will be presumed to have earned 110% of the average weekly wage in the area. For a child, the lost earnings are presumed to be the average of the parent’s earnings. It can be disheartening to see a life reduced to just a lifetime salary, but that is the law’s way of trying to help survivors cope.

Consortium damages can be awkward to talk about, but they are as central to a survivor’s well being as anything. Consortium generally covers the somewhat intangible things that a spouse provides, including love, affection, companionship, and sexual relations. These are obviously damages that only a spouse can claim. Children can be awarded damages for the lost instruction, guidance, counsel, training, and support that a parent provides. Parents of the deceased person may also be able to collect for lost support their child may have provided them. These damages can be harder to quantify and explain to a jury so a good lawyer is important.
