Someone has negligently or purposefully taken the life of your loved one. While you know that no settlement or verdict will ever really “settle” the tragedy that has occurred, you also know that there are potential benefits to pursuing a legal settlement that could be important for you, for your loved one, and potentially for others. Accordingly, you made the decision to pursue a legal recovery and enter Iowa wrongful death settlement negotiations.
What Will Those Negotiations Be Like?
The answer is that it depends on a number of factors. Those factors include:
- Whether you have an Iowa wrongful death attorney representing you. If you have a lawyer representing you then you need not negotiate directly with the insurance company, lawyer, or other defendant. Instead, your lawyer can handle the negotiations.
- Assuming you do have an attorney, how involved you want to be in the negotiations. You and your lawyer will discuss how involved you want to be in the negotiation process. For example, you might discuss whether you want to be notified of every offer, and whether you want regular updates on the settlement process or only important updates.
You can control some aspects of Iowa wrongful death settlement negotiations. It need not take over your life or interfere with your grieving or everyday activities. Instead, your lawyer can provide you with an overview of what to expect at each stage of the process and work with you to make the settlement process as easy as possible.
