Did a loved one suffer a wrongful death in Iowa?

Find out what the insurance industry doesn’t want your family to know

It is always hard to lose someone you love. It is even harder when you suspect that your loved one’s death resulted from someone else’s fault, such as in a wrongful death case. The grieving process is difficult enough – now you have to figure out how to hold the responsible person accountable and get a fair settlement for the survivors. We here at RSH Legal know how difficult that can be.

An Iowa wrongful death claim is something that most people (and most lawyers) are not equipped to deal with on their own.

Depending on what caused your family member’s death, you may need an expert in:

On top of all that, you need an understanding of Iowa probate law so any wrongful death settlement can be legally and appropriately distributed to the surviving family.

Unfortunately, the insurance companies of the person or persons who caused your loved one’s wrongful death typically make this bad situation worse. Over the years, we have seen insurance companies work hard to deny responsibility, delay negotiations and – even in the most obvious cases of wrongful death – offer lowball settlement offers to grieving families who know no better. Insurance corporations feel comfortable engaging in these unfair tactics because they know a family in mourning is vulnerable to making bad decisions.

If you suspect a family member or loved one was killed by someone else’s fault, your mind is probably swirling with questions like:

  • “Who is responsible for what happened to my loved one?”
  • “How do I find out if I have an Iowa wrongful death case?”
