Relentlessly Fighting for Justice, Accountability & Compensation
Losing a loved one due to the negligence of another is a devastating experience. Seeking justice and legal retribution are natural requests from those left behind to suffer the loss. At Currie & Liabo Law Firm PLC, we can help you to seek justice for the wrongful death of your loved one. Using every avenue and recourse, we will work diligently to help you get the justice you deserve. Our aim is to help you receive the maximum amount of compensation for the pain you have had to endure.
As your wrongful death attorneys, we will stop at nothing to ensure that the negligent parties are held accountable. We understand the sorrow and grief you are experiencing and we will see to it that your case is handled with compassion and care. It is imperative to get the compensation you are owed after this tragedy so that you can cover final expenses and other financial obligations.
Cases We Handle
Wrongful death claims are complex and emotionally sensitive matters. Death, unfortunately, can occur after numerous accidents and negligent actions. While it is important to hold these wrongful parties accountable, a claim for compensation may also help surviving loved ones get the financial and emotional help they need to move forward after their loss.
We offer legal assistance for those who have lost someone after the following:
- Medical malpractice
- Defective and dangerous products
- Car, motorcycle, or truck crashes
- Workplace accidents
- Catastrophic injuries
Compensation from a wrongful death claim can provide financial assistance for final medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of support, loss of companionship, and more.
How Long Do I Have to File a Wrongful Death Claim?
The statute of limitations to file a wrongful death claim in Iowa is two years from the date of your loved one’s passing. This means you have only two years to file a claim or you will most likely lose your right to file and recover compensation. It’s worth noting that the date of your loved one’s death may be different from the date they suffered the injuries that led to their passing. In the days following the loss of your loved one there may be documents or evidence that can be helpful in your case. Working with an attorney has many benefits and can allow you the time to focus on recovery while we focus on getting you the compensation you deserve.
