What Can You Recover In A Wrongful Death Case?
Prevailing in a wrongful death case will not bring your loved one back, but a compensation award will help you cope with the loss and cover costs you do not deserve to be burdened with. Compensation for lost family income, loss of companionship, loss of parental care and support, funeral expenses and punitive damages may be available in your case.
You have legal rights, which you deserve to pursue. When we represent your interests, our lawyers will help you navigate complex legal systems and processes. We will keep you informed throughout the legal process and tirelessly advocate for your case in all legal forums.
We independently investigate your claim, collaborate with expert witnesses, reconstruct the accident scene, tap all available resources and draw on our 40 years of experience to build the case that is capable of achieving maximum compensation for past and future losses.
Who May Bring A Wrongful Death Claim?
Wrongful death claims in Illinois must be filed by the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate, who is usually a spouse, close relative, parent or adult child. If your loved one died without appointing a personal representative, the court may appoint one.
It is critical to consult an experienced attorney about your wrongful death claim as soon as possible. Building a strong case and filing it within the two-year statute of limitations may be a challenge, but it is a challenge we can meet.
