Wrongful  Death in Des Moines, Iowa? Call a wrongful death lawyer Des Moines IA Trusts for help.

Fortunately, most injuries are not catastrophic however, tragically, fatal accidents do happen. The wrongful death lawyer Des Moines IA residents can call upon have represented family members of those tragically killed in accidents throughout the Midwest. The facts of each and every wrongful death case are unique but, sadly, each wrongful death case involves grieving loved ones – those left behind to pick up the pieces and try to assemble some sort of “new normal”.

When representing family members in wrongful death cases, our lawyers take the time to sit down with each family member to learn the full extent of their loss – not just the financial loss but what did the loved one mean to them…as a person…a brother, a son, a husband, a wife…a friend.

In some situations, it can be relatively straightforward to determine lost income but that is often the smallest part of a wrongful death claim. What can prove to be much more challenging is determining what the loss of a loved one means – how do you value what it means to have your loved one call every Sunday night, “just to talk”? How do you value your annual fishing trip with your loved one? These are the questions that our wrongful death lawyers dig into and then present to the insurance company or jury in a way that is understandable – we work to make them truly feel your loss and compensate you accordingly.

To help with this, we may utilize “day in the life” videos which can range from a simple video montage compiled from still  of the lost loved one up to more active videos that include interviews of survivors discussing their loss and what their loved one meant to them. Not only are these videos an effective way to put a face on the survivors but it also helps bring the character of the decedent to life in a small way. Additionally, videos are a way for the insurance companies to see just how a jury might perceive the value of a wrongful death case.

We understand that no amount of money is ever truly acceptable when a loved one is killed. However, we have had clients use their proceeds from wrongful death cases to plant a memorial garden while others  have established scholarships or playgrounds in the name of their loved one. This type of investment gave our clients some peace knowing that the loss of their loved one wasn’t completely in vain and it helps to have the memories lived on.
