Davenport Wrongful Death Lawyers
Michael K. Bush and John C. Bush are accomplished trial lawyers. They have dedicated their practice to plaintiff representation for the last 30 years. They have secured wrongful death damages in a wide range of fatalities, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents (car, truck, motorcycle, pedestrian)
- Workplace accidents
- Medical malpractice (surgery, undiagnosed illness, fetal/newborn death)
- Nursing home negligence
There are many unique considerations in wrongful death litigation that require experienced handling. When does the statute of limitations expire? Did your loved one die at the scene, soon after or much later? Is there a direct causal connection? Is the defense denying liability or claiming contributory negligence on the part of the victim? Are there third parties who share responsibility of the death?
Michael and John Bush are hands-on attorneys who will be intimately involved in your case from start to finish. They have cultivated a nationwide network of medical experts, accident investigators and other professionals who can help us establish liability and corroborate the damages.
Calculating Damages for an Accidental Death
Wrongful death litigation is not about putting a price on a person’s life. It is about measuring the impact on the survivors. Beyond funeral expenses and projected earnings, we work closely with families to flesh out all the ways that the deceased is and will be missed: loss of love and companionship, loss of counsel and support, loss of household services and parenting contributions.
