Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one is devastating. If your family member has died unexpectedly, you likely have questions you want answered. If you suspect that your family member died due to someone else’s negligence or misconduct, we will uncover what happened, and seek compensation that honors the significance of your loss.

Your legal rights

If your loved one died due to someone else’s negligence or misconduct, Illinois law entitles you to damages under the Wrongful Death Act and Survival Act, including:

  • The loss of economic support, such as lost wages and lost household services.
  • Conscious pain and suffering prior to death.
  • Loss of society, defined as the loss of love, comfort, companionship, affection, and guidance that each family member loses as a result of the victim’s death.
  • Grief, sorrow, and mental suffering.

Wrongful death lawsuits can stem from medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, nursing home abuse, workplace accidents, dangerous and defective products, or police misconduct.
