Wrongful Death Damages In Illinois
While personal injury claims are intended to help the accident victim obtain compensation for his or her injuries, wrongful death claims are designed to provide compensation for spouses and children and surviving family members.
In handling a wrongful death case, we take into consideration all of the ways in which our clients have been and will be impacted by the death of their loved one. In Illinois, wrongful death statutes allow surviving family members to pursue compensation for elements such as:
- Loss of future income
- Loss of employment benefits
- Loss of inheritance
- Loss of parental guidance
- Pain and suffering of the surviving family members
- Pain and suffering of the decedent prior to death
- Final medical bills
- Funeral expenses
Our attorneys have successfully handled numerous wrongful death cases and have a proven record of success obtaining millions of dollars for our clients and their families. While nothing can compensate you for your loss, we can fight for the financial resources you need to make it through this difficult time.
