Why File a Wrongful Death Suit?
After a loved one dies in an accident, families of the victim are often left with sudden medical bills, funeral costs, and other unexpected expenses, in addition to their emotional struggles as they cope with the passing of their loved one. In this period of stress and mourning, the last thing on a family member’s mind may be wrongful death litigation. However, a wrongful death lawsuit can help a family meet these unexpected financial challenges and can help create a sense of closure as they pursue justice against the party responsible for their loss.
Wrongful Death Litigation
Family members may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit when the person or party responsible for their loved one’s death displayed extremely negligent behavior or even acted with malice. A person may file a wrongful death lawsuit for reasons such as:
- Vehicle defects and malfunctions
- Dangerous or defective products
- Drunk driving accidents
- Medical mistakes
If your loved one has been killed in a preventable accident, you may have the grounds to file a wrongful death lawsuit and receive compensation for unexpected costs as well as for your pain and suffering and other losses. A qualified Iowa wrongful death attorney can further evaluate your case and provide you with legal advice regarding your particular situation.
