Who Can File A Missouri Wrongful Death Case?

In Missouri, there are several classes of people eligible to file a wrongful death case and become the case’s executor.

  • Preference is given to the deceased’s spouse, parents, or children (adopted, natural, or illegitimate).
  • If there are no individuals from these classes, then the eligibility passes to a brother, sister, niece, or nephew of the deceased.
  • Finally, if there are no eligible individuals of the proceeding classes, a Missouri court can appoint a plaintiff ad litem who will serve as the executor.
