Serving Iowa With Integrity and Commitment

Des Moines Wrongful Death Attorney

First of all, please know that at Balduchi Law Office, PC, we are truly sorry about your loss if you have arrived at this Web page after the death of a loved one in a car accident or other type of accident. Representing family members in wrongful death claims brings bittersweet rewards as we learn about the virtues of people we never knew — and regret not having known them after family members share what was special about them.

Attorney Kent Balduchi is a former firefighter and paramedic for the city of Des Moines. In these capacities, he came face to face with accidental deaths from time to time. As a first responder, he had unique opportunities to provide comfort to surviving members in highly stressful situations. As wrongful death lawyers, the financial relief that he and attorney Elizabeth Varnon help family members tap into comes about much more slowly. However, this monetary compensation can make a longer-lasting difference in their lives.

Besides the overwhelming personal losses that you and your family are experiencing and will continue to experience after the accidental death of a loved one, there are also critical financial demands and losses:

  • Final medical bills
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost income that the deceased person used to provide
  • Lost services that the deceased person used to provide to a family (and sometimes those services must be replaced at a cost — such as by hiring a handyman or child care providers to fill the gaps)

Through a wrongful death claim or lawsuit against a negligent party, you may be able to recover these financial losses as well as compensation for loss of companionship and loss of consortium (in the case of a marital relationship).

Contact Balduchi Law Office, PC, after an accidental death in the family in Iowa to learn how Mr. Balduchi or attorney Elizabeth Varnon can be of assistance to your family after a car accident, workplace accident, recreational accident or other accident causing the sudden death of a loved one.
