Wrongful Death Attorney
Wrongful Death Litigation
The death of a loved one takes an obvious emotional toll on you and your family, but it often takes a financial toll as well. It can be overwhelming to attend to all of the details such as insurance policies, bank statements, bills, asset titles, wills, and other documents trying to figure out how the loss of your loved one will affect you and your family going forward. Loss of future income, and often medical bills incurred by your loved one before he or she passed away from injury suffered in an accident may be concerns you are dealing with.
When you lose a loved one through someone else’s negligence, recklessness, or malpractice, Illinois law says you may be entitled to monetary compensation. Among the damages you may be able to recover include:
Medical bills from the injury or malpractice that you’re loved one incurred before passing
Loss of economic support
Loss of the relationship with your loved one, also known as a loss of consortium
Grief, sorrow, and mental suffering
