We Work On Each Case As If It Is Our Only Case
Q: Who can file a wrongful death suit?
A: Each state is different and Illinois is no exception. The children and the surviving spouse can file a lawsuit and recover any damages. In the absence of spouses and children, other relatives, including parents or siblings of the deceased, may file instead.
Q: They never had a job. Do I still have a case?
A: Yes, even if the deceased never held an official job, you still have a case. For example, stay-at-home moms or dads contribute to the family in many other ways besides financially. These are considered pecuniary losses in wrongful death cases.
Q: How is compensation determined?
A: There are many factors that are considered. The most common are: loss of income, loss of emotional support, cost of medical treatment and funeral expenses. We will do our best to build the strongest possible case for you and your family.
