Although it is very difficult to think clearly and logically after the death of a loved one due to the burden of the funeral and the huge emotional distress, you should not hesitate to take legal action against the person responsible for the death of your family member. Wrongful death involves the death of a person caused by negligent or irresponsible behavior of another person without the intent to kill. A wrongful death lawsuit is a complex legal proceeding that requires a professional approach, patience and strict following of state regulations before going to court. It is almost impossible to file a proper wrongful death in Illinois without the help of a qualified personal injuries lawyer, who can gather and prepare the required legal papers, determine whether the client is eligible for a financial compensation and its amount, among many other details.
Wrongful death can be caused by a variety of circumstances, such as medical negligence or lack of qualification in hospitals or nursing homes resulting in death, a defective product, driving while under the influence of alcohol, failure to perform a surgery or diagnose a severe disorder, failure to implement basic safety measures in construction settings, among many others. A personal injury lawyer in Illinois can help navigate through the sophisticated legal requirements and regulations and emerge on the winning side of the lawsuit.
Moreover, the court may not allow unqualified individuals to prepare their lawsuit on their own because it greatly prolongs the duration of court proceedings and can make room for errors and legal deficiencies. It is important to contact an Illinois wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible after the tragic occurrence because the state of Illinois has set a time limit one has to file a lawsuit, which is two years for wrongful death claims. The time starts from the moment the accident happened. After two years, the person responsible for the death of your loved one will not be prosecuted according to Illinois Statutes of Limitations.
You may start by preparing the available evidence, such as proof of death in the form of a death certificate, statements from witnesses and family members who are suffering emotional and financial losses due to the death of their loved ones. Then you need to contact a qualified Illinois personal injury lawyer who needs to determine the eligibility for compensation of medical bills and funeral costs, loss of benefits such as insurance, loss of inheritance, and potential punitive damages. The wrongful death lawyer makes sure to prove that the death of your family member was a result of clear negligent or irresponsible behavior of the individual against whom the claim is filed.
Don’t hesitate to take legal action quickly because legal and court proceedings take time, and there is a time limit of two years established by the state of Illinois for this particular type of crime. Don’t suffer in silence if you have reasons to believe that the death of your family member is another person’s fault, and take proper legal action by contacting a qualified lawyer to obtain compensation for your financial or emotional distress and restore justice.

I was rear-ended by a semi-truck on my way to work. I was transported to the hospital and my car was totaled. In the aftermath, Dan Petrich and Anna Schmidt from Malman Law helped me get set up with physical therapy and negotiated with the insurance companies to make sure the resulting settlement would cover my medical bills and a rental car until I could get a new car. I would highly recommend their services.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
