Wrongful Death Compensation In Illinois

In Illinois, wrongful death laws allow family members to pursue compensation for the losses they have suffered due to the death of a loved one and for certain damages the deceased person suffered prior to death. Damages may include:

  • Final medical bills
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Lost earnings and wages
  • Conscious pain and suffering experienced by the deceased prior to death
  • Loss of household services
  • Loss of companionship
  • Loss of love and affection
  • Grief and sorrow

You must be a close relative, such as a spouse, parent or child of the decedent, to pursue a wrongful death claim.

Wrongful death cases are often aggressively defended, so it is important to enlist the services of a personal injury law firm like ours that has a proven record of standing up to strong tactics from the opposition. Call 312-372-4444 to schedule a free consultation.

We handle all types of wrongful death claims, including those arising from car accidents, workplace accidents, medical malpractice and nursing home neglect.
