Your loved one has died too soon. While death may be an inevitable part of life, your loved one did not have to die on the day that he did. Your family does not need to be suffering like it is and you shouldn’t have to face the future without your loved one. Nevertheless, the negligent or deliberate actions (or inactions) of another person caused your loved one to die.
Do You Have an Iowa Wrongful Death Case?
Generally, you may be able to prove an Iowa wrongful death case if you establish that:
- The defendant was negligent or, alternatively, the defendant violated the law.
- The defendant’s negligent or deliberate actions caused your loved one’s death, which would not have happened but for the defendant’s conduct.
- You have legal standing to bring the lawsuit because you are your loved one’s legal beneficiary.
- Your loved one’s death has resulted in a monetary loss.
If you prove these elements of your case then you may be able to convince an insurance company to settle your claim or a jury to return a verdict in your favor.
