It may seem like there is very little that you can control right now. You can’t bring your loved one back. You may not be able to control your grief or the grieving of your family.

While your life has changed in a horrifying and unfair way, there is one thing that you do have control over. You have the right to decide whether or not you will file a wrongful death case and you have the right to take steps to protect your claim.

Three Things You Can Do to Build a Strong Wrongful Death Case

A strong wrongful death case can help protect your possible financial recovery and your future. Accordingly, it is important to protect your rights by:

  1. Preserving evidence. It is important to preserve evidence such as hospital bills, funeral bills, evidence of income prior to death, and other losses caused by your loved one’s fatal accident.
  2. Being honest with your Des Moines wrongful death lawyer. Do not hide things simply because you think they may be harmful to your case or your recovery. The other side will likely know about these things and it is better for your lawyer to be prepared.
  3. Watching what you say to others. Do not talk directly with the insurance company, the defendant, or another lawyer. Additionally, watch what you say on social media sites.

There are additional ways in which your lawyer will help you build a strong wrongful death case.
