Chicago Wrongful Death Lawyers
One of the most devastating tragedies that a family can face is the unexpected loss of a loved one through an unexpected and untimely accident. The situation is exacerbated if the accident was the result of woeful neglect or carelessness on the part of someone else.
A family facing this situation may be understandably hesitant to contact an attorney. No amount of money can bring the loved one back. Yet, that hesitation can mean the difference between success and failure in the courtroom. Contacting an attorney as soon as possible will ensure that valuable evidence is protected and the proper sequence of events is identified.
Illinois’ Wrongful Death Act was enacted to protect families by enabling them to recover economic damages, including any medical costs prior to the death, and also the loss of earnings and benefits over the victim’s probable life expectancy. Further, if a victim didn’t die instantly, the family may qualify for award compensation under the Illinois Survival Act, which attempts to compensate a family for the physical and mental suffering between the time of the accident and the victim’s death.
