Hiring a Wrongful Death Attorney

Accident victims may succumb to injuries they suffered in a car accident, slip and fall, bicycle accident, workplace injury, etc. Victims of nursing home abuse and medical malpractice are also at risk of dying as a result of their injuries.

However your loved one was injured, you have the right to pursue compensation if their death resulted from another party’s wrongful or negligent actions.

When you hire a wrongful death lawyer, you can rest assured that your legal team will investigate the accident, obtain evidence to support your case, and calculate the value of your damages.

An attorney can negotiate with the at-fault party’s insurance company to obtain a fair financial settlement or pursue your claim through a civil lawsuit.

In both Iowa and Illinois, the wrongful death statutes allow only a personal representative of the victim’s estate to bring legal action.

The law also dictates who is eligible to recover compensation and how proceeds are to be divided.

Talking to a wrongful death lawyer will help ensure you don’t compromise your legal rights or lose the ability to recover compensation.
