Wrongful Death Attorneys | Joplin, MO
Jasper County Fatal Accident Attorneys
The death of a family member is the most devastating event that anyone can experience. While nothing can bring your loved one back, the judicial process can help you obtain a measure of justice if the death was caused by the negligence of another party.
At Copeland & Brown, we offer a free initial consultation to explain your rights if an accident has caused the death of a loved one. Our lawyers will take the time to answer your questions about liability, insurance, lost financial support, funeral expenses and other issues related to the death. Our lawyers represent families in Joplin and throughout southwest Missouri.
We begin every wrongful death case with a personal meeting, so we can understand the circumstances surrounding the loss of your loved one and your goals. To do justice for your family, our lawyers need to understand the life of your family member and what that person meant to the survivors. It’s important for the negligent party and their insurance company to understand how the loss has affected your family.
When my father was killed in an auto accident, the attorneys at Copeland and Brown helped me through the most difficult time of my life. Having attorneys like Copeland and Brown fighting the insurance company and aggressively pursuing my wrongful death case, allowed me the opportunity and time to heal.
