My great aunt was sick and elderly at the time an accident caused her death. She likely did have many years left ahead of her, but she didn’t have to die now because of nursing home abuse. Should I contact an Iowa wrongful death lawyer?

We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one in this way. You are right. Although your great aunt—or any other loved one no longer able to live independently—may not have had a long time left to live, she did not need to die because of the abusive or negligent actions of those who were supposed to take care of her.

Your loved one may have been sick and elderly, and thus residing in a nursing home. That does not, however, limit your ability to file a lawsuit. If your loved one was the victim of negligence or abuse and that negligence or abuse caused her death, then your family may be able to file a lawsuit. It is important to note, however, that the damages may be different than they would in another type of wrongful death case since your loved one’s life expectancy was short and since your loved one was likely not earning an income or expected to earn an income again.

For more information about your rights and about the potential benefits of filing an Iowa wrongful death lawsuit after a nursing home abuse death, please contact an experienced Cedar Rapids wrongful death lawyer today at 888-807-2752. We are sorry for your loss and we would be pleased to provide you with a free consultation.
