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.

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:
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.
