Dedicated Chicago Wrongful Death Lawyers

Compassionate Attorneys Serving Families of Wrongful Death Victims in Chicago

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more U.S. citizens die as a result of injuries (and violence) – including vehicle accidents and slips and falls – than from diseases like the flu, or even cancer. One individual dies roughly every three minutes from accidental injuries of all sorts. And, while the emotional, physical, and mental tolls are high enough, it is estimated that the economic cost of fatal injuries in 2013 amounted to a staggering $214 billion nationwide. While those costs are proportionally smaller for individuals and families, in reality, they can be just as devastating.

Even more devastating still is the notion that individuals and their loved ones can fall victim to these financial, emotional, and physical expenses due to the negligence of another who caused the injuries that led to wrongful death. With soaring medical bills and the necessary period of grieve involved when losing a loved one, the last thing that a family should have to worry about is how to go about filing a wrongful death claim. For these reasons and others, it can be difficult to find a good Illinois accident lawyer whom you can trust.

Fortunately, Malman Law has been addressing these difficult and life-changing situations with families for decades. We know exactly what you and your family is going through – from the daily financial worries, to the feelings of injustice and confusion, to the emotional difficulty. Our expert attorneys have the compassion that it takes to work with you one-on-one and answer each question throughout the claim process. We have the tenacity and aggression to seek justice from the responsible parties (and even their insurance companies). And, we have the experience that it takes to secure rightful compensation for the damages suffered.

Save yourself from the heartache and pain of going from office to office and recounting the story of the loss of your loved one. Call the wrongful death attorneys at Malman Law today, and tell us your story once and for all.

Filing a Wrongful Death Claim

If death is caused to an individual by a situation that could have warranted a personal injury claim being filed (if the deceased would have lived), then the circumstances may constitute a wrongful death claim. Though the negligence of another is a leading factor in wrongful death claims, the death could have been caused by many other factors – such as premise liability issues, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, and defective products – and still quality as a wrongful death for the victim.

If the wrongfully deceased’s spouse or next of kin decides to file a wrongful death claim, compensation for the following economic and noneconomic damages suffered by family members may be awarded:

  • Pain, suffering, and grief;
  • Loss of consortium;
  • Loss of future income and benefits of the deceased; and
  • Funeral and other related costs.

If you feel that a loved one was the victim of wrongful death, please contact our offices as soon as possible. While it may feel overwhelming to seek compensation through a wrongful death claim, our injury lawyers are highly skilled in all types of accident cases, including those resulting in wrongful death. We have the skills and experience that you need to help with the claim. Don’t go it alone – Illinois state law is different than many other states, in that the spouse or next of kin can file a direct claim, instead of filing a claim on behalf of the deceased’s estate. This distinction can often be of help to our clients as they seek compensation for damages.

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
