How to file a wrongful death claim in Chicago

If you need to file a wrongful death claim in Chicago, you will need to gather proof of death (such as a death certificate) as well as statements from witnesses and family members who are dealing with the death of their loved ones. Next, contact a personal injury lawyer, who will determine the amount of compensation for medical bills, funeral costs, loss of benefits, loss of inheritance and potential punitive damages there are to fight for. The lawyer will need to prove that your loved one’s death was directly caused by the negligent behavior of the individual or group against whom the claim is being filed. There is a statute of limitations of two years for filing a wrongful death claim, so the sooner you file with a lawyer, the better.
