Wrongful Death & Catastrophic Injuries

Wrongful Death & Catastrophic Injuries

The unexpected death of a loved one can have an overwhelming impact on a family.

Surviving family members often find it incredibly difficult to move forward and struggle economically, especially when the decedent was the primary income source.

Incredibly, some personal injury lawyers who advertise “aggressive” representation have never been to trial on a wrongful death case. With the stakes so high, it is critical you hire wrongful death attorneys who understand the many layers, complexities and challenges of handling a wrongful death case and a law firm with the financial resources to go to trial when a fair settlement offer never comes.

At McShane & Brady, our wrongful death attorneys have decades of experience and a long history of success in the courtroom helping families recover when tragedy strikes

Over the past two decades, our firm has represented thousands of clients injured or killed by auto accidents, drownings, motorcycle crashes, nursing home abuse and medical malpractice across Missouri and Kansas. If you have lost a loved one due to negligence or medical malpractice by a hospital, doctor or medical provider, our attorneys are here to help.

90,000 +

deaths occur each year due to medical malpractice alone, not including the many other causes of wrongful death.

How should you deal with Insurance Companies?

The loss of a loved one due to a wrongful death incident is a painful life-altering event. No one or any family is ever prepared for such a tragic loss. McShane & Brady has experience dealing with wrongful death cases in Missouri and Kansas and know that not only do families have to deal with the pain and suffering of the results of the incident, but they also have to deal with insurance companies who add insult to injury by giving insulting low ball offers.

The fact that these insurance companies place so little value of the lives of the injured and the lives of the deceased is almost criminal. It is also often an eye opening experience for families who assumed insurance companies act in good faith. They just don’t! In a time when the victim of an accident should be healing and the families of the deceased should be grieving, they usually don’t get that luxury—while having to deal with the additional stress of worrying about the financial aspects of their lives and their case.

When dealing with all the emotions during this time many times it is difficult to make decisions about the future.

If the death of your family member or loved one was caused by someone else or the negligence of another, it is important that you not allow your feelings, loss, and pain influence any decisions about how you move forward.

Insurance companies are typically eager to settle wrongful death claims as quickly as possible… and for as little as possible. This is why you need a qualified attorney who understands how wrongful death cases are handled and the ins and outs of the entire legal process. McShane & Brady refuses to allow insurance companies a free pass with our clients.

J.A.

HIPAA

My wife was injured in a terrible car accident. We hired an attorney that we believed would look out for our best interest. It turns out he was looking out for himself and not for us by taking our settlement and running away. We lost faith in dealing with attorneys that day, making a bad situation even tougher to deal with. After some thought, we decided to try another attorney to see if we could get the help we needed. We were referred to McShane & Brady. Maureen and Lucy restored our confidence and trust. They fought hard for us and have led the charge.
