Wrongful Death Attorneys in Des Moines, Iowa
Standing with You After the Loss of A Loved One
There is no sadder moment than the loss of a loved one in a tragic accident. It is a rapid change to a future you had thought you had with a person who meant the world to you. It’s difficult to know who to turn to.
As a former firefighter and paramedic, attorney Kent Balduchi often came face-to-face with accidental deaths. As a first responder, he had unique opportunities to provide comfort to surviving members in highly stressful situations. He brings that firsthand knowledge of those moments of acute suffering to his actions on behalf of his clients from Des Moines, Ankeny, and across Iowa.
The Struggles Facing Survivors
Besides the overwhelming personal losses that you and your family are going through, there are also critical financial demands and losses, including:
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.
Take the Time to Learn About Your Family’s Rights
While often, wrongful death claims may take longer than others, this monetary compensation can make a longer-lasting difference in the lives of the victim’s family. Wrongful death benefits may be paid out to any of the following:
Parent(s) of a deceased minor child
Parent(s) of a deceased adult child
Mr. Balduchi understands how to work circumspectly with families during a time of mourning with minimal disruptions. Without burdening a family unduly with legal matters during the grieving process, he can lay the groundwork behind the scenes for a wrongful death claim that can bring real relief.
