Addressing negligence with strong legal action
A wrongful death action is filed by the personal representative for the estate of the individual who was killed. We structure your lawsuit to prove the negligence of the parties who contributed to the deadly accident that took your loved one. By proving negligence, you can be awarded monetary damages including:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral and burial costs
- Loss of companionship, love and guidance of a spouse, parent or child
- Lost future earnings
We provide rigorous, knowledgeable legal service with wrongful death matters in areas across the practice of personal injury, including:
Our attorneys offer guidance about what to expect during a wrongful death action in West Des Moines, including:
- Brought by the estate of the deceased, a wrongful death lawsuit is intended financially to benefit a spouse, children and close relatives. The personal representative bringing the action is often a beneficiary.
- Speaking with our firm at the outset of a fatal injury — and death — is important. Evidence is quickly lost, circumstances change and the statute of limitations to bring an action is two years from the date of death.
- Accurately to value your claim, we use expert witnesses to testify to value and compensation lost due to the premature death of your loved one.
The sudden death of a loved one alters your life. We know what that means. By providing experienced, reputable legal service, we offer you an opportunity for justice and the means to move forward. We offer hope.
