Kansas City
Wrongful Death Attorneys

Representing Families in Missouri & Kansas Since 1990

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence or wrongful action of another, the pain can be unbearable. In addition to the tremendous grief you feel, you may be angry and confused. You may face extraordinary financial difficulties including large medical bills, funeral expenses, and lost income not only from the person you lost but also from your inability to work. It is an extremely painful time. A wrongful death that was caused by someone’s careless act is a pain you will never “get over.” Hopefully, with time, the ability to cope with the loss will get easier but it is not something you ever “get over”. Fighting to make sure that another family does not have to experience the pain your family is going through can be important in terms of not only making the world a safer place but to your healing process.

The Kansas City wrongful death attorneys at Cullan & Cullan are here to guide and support you through these trying times. We can investigate the circumstances surrounding your loss to determine whether someone else (an individual or a company) was responsible, and we can hold them accountable in civil court. This gives you the opportunity to see justice served, as well as to a verdict or settlement that will help you face a more stable future.
