Wrongful Death Attorneys in St. Louis Who Win You More Money – And Don’t Pay Any Medical Bills Until After You Win Your Claim!
Hundreds of 5-Star Reviews Online
Did you experience the tragic loss of your loved one because of someone else’s negligent behavior?
Nothing emotionally devastates you or turns your life upside down like the death of your loved one.
Not only do you have to deal with years of grief and trauma, but you have a big pile of medical bills, funeral expenses, and their lost income to manage too.
Winning money for these losses won’t replace your loved one. But it will preserve your quality of life and take a lot of stress off.
You also have the obvious difficulty of dealing with the negligent party, their lawyer, and likely an insurance company. And of course, they don’t want to pay any more than they have to.
And you have another problem. One you probably haven’t even thought about.
That lies in finding a wrongful death lawyer in St. Louis with the proven skill and the personal desire to get you the money you deserve.
Because not all lawyers do. Just like any other professional service, you have some who do spectacular work…and some who don’t.
For example, you may know the lawyers you see advertising on TV all the time.
But usually, they ram your case through their process as fast as possible to maximize their own profit per hour.
They can win your claim. But they might leave a truckload of money on the table…sometimes even six figures or more.
Then, you also have larger firms. They seem like they know their stuff and that they’ll do you right.
But they routinely have an experienced senior lawyer meet with you and supervise your claim. Then, inexperienced junior attorneys and paralegals do all the real work on your claim.
And again, this means a lot of money can be left on the table.

That’s Not All! 3 More Bonuses You Only Get with Mullen & Mullen Law Firm
Experience and a proven track record should be the top things you consider when evaluating wrongful death attorneys in the St. Louis area.
You get both with Mullen & Mullen. And to sweeten the deal more, you also get the following:
- No need to pay your medical bills until after you win your claim (if we take your case). How could this possibly be serious? Who has ever heard of medical professionals who don’t bill you until months later when you win your claim? This is 100% true. We have specially negotiated relationships with medical professionals and institutions in the St. Louis area. If we take your case on, they won’t bill you until after you win your claim. That’s a lot of stress off your shoulders that lets you focus on healing from the loss of your loved one.
- A reduced 29% case fee (normally 33.3%). If your claim settles without having to go to court (and about 90% of ours do), you pay a reduced case fee of just 29%. That could easily mean thousands more in your pocket.
- Additional savings passed on to you. Rather than contract an in-house private investigator (which most firms do), we employ one. That costs a lot less. And we pass those savings on to you. Plus, Mike Foster has been with us for more than a decade. He knows all the right questions and evidence-gathering techniques to use to gather the most compelling data that gives you the best chance of winning your wrongful death claim.

What’s Important for Me to Know About Wrongful Death Claims?
Understand not every lawyer will get you the same legal outcome. You don’t need “a wrongful death lawyer.” You need “the right wrongful death lawyer.”
Much is at stake. And when you need any professional service, you always talk to at least a few different service providers. So, make sure you do the same if you need a wrongful death lawyer.
Next, be aware that you have just three years from the date of your loved one’s death to file your claim.
It may feel difficult to act on the situation quickly. And it may feel overwhelming because not only do you have the loss of your loved one to deal with, but you have the stress of finding a lawyer and interacting with the legal system.
The longer you wait, the more time the defense has to mount their case. And it makes it more challenging for your lawyer to get their plan together too.
Doing things in a rush at the last minute always makes them tougher. So, you’re wise to act as soon as you can to give yourself the best chance possible of winning your claim and getting the most money law allows.
Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Missouri?
Missouri law attempts to cover every situation possible. For starters, a surviving child, spouse, or parents have the first right to file a wrongful death claim.
Adopted children do not have the right to file a claim for their biological parents and vice versa.
If the deceased had no spouse, parents, or children, then the right to file a wrongful death claim goes to any biological brothers or sisters or lineal descendants.
But a sibling must prove they experienced harm for which they can recover damages as outlined by Missouri law.
Can I Recover Compensation for Pain and Suffering?
More than likely, you will not be able to recover compensation for your own emotional pain and suffering.
However, you can recover compensation for the reasonable value of several services your deceased loved one offered.
Those include services around your home, consortium (their relationship contributions), companionship, comfort, guidance, counsel, training, and support.
Can I Recover Punitive Damages?
Missouri calls these “aggravating circumstances.”
These damages intend to punish the guilty party to deter them, and anyone else, from engaging in such grossly negligent behavior ever again.
We’ll pursue these on your behalf, if possible. But understand you may or may not be able to recover them.
Is There Any Limit to What I Can Recover?
In most cases, no.
Medical malpractice claims that result in a wrongful death do have a limit.
But any other type of personal injury resulting in your loved one’s death has no maximum recovery limit.
