Experienced Attorneys Representing Families Who Have Lost Loved Ones
Metro-East — St. Clair County — Madison County — Eastern Missouri — Southern and Southwestern Illinois
The loss of a loved one has been called "the most unkind cut of all". A death in the family is particularly difficult when it is caused by the careless actions of others. If you have lost a loved one in a fatal car accident, we would like to extend our condolences, and offer our support in your time of need.
You have the right to file a legal action against the negligent person or persons who caused or contributed to the wrongful death of your loved one. You may be entitled to money damages for the loss of present and future earnings, emotional support and retirement benefits.

Full and Fair Compensation
Money damages for wrongful death claims often include recovery for the following:
- Loss of Companionship and Emotional Support
- Loss of Income
- Reduction of Future Inheritance Value
- Reduction of Retirement Benefits and Life Insurance Policies
In certain instances, the court may award punitive damages — extra penalties paid by the negligent party as punishment for the wrongdoing. Because wrongful death claims get very complex, it is wise to consult with an accomplished attorney for counsel.
We Don't Get Paid Unless You Win Compensation
Our clients have a lot on their plates after fatal truck or motorcycle accidents. We understand that there are many unexpected expenses, and we do not wish to burden the family during this difficult time. Our attorneys work on contingency. That means that we receive payment only after we win money damages for you.
We invest a great deal of time and energy into our wrongful death and personal injury cases, so we only accept the cases which we believe we can win.
Don't sign your rights away. If an insurance adjuster calls you, please call Schoen Walton Telken & Foster at 1-866-661-3799 to schedule a free initial consultation in our East St. Louis, Edwardsville or St. Louis office.
