Chicago Wrongful Death Attorney

When someone is killed as a result of negligence or misconduct of another, the surviving members of the victim’s family can sue for wrongful death. The suit can be brought against the person or persons responsible, as well as public agencies such as a city, school, or hospital. A claim may arise from situations such as medical malpractice, occupational exposure to hazardous conditions, or criminal behavior. Every year there are over 90,000 deaths as a result of malpractice in the United States.

A Chicago wrongful death lawyer seeks to obtain damages on behalf of the family. These damages include medical and funeral expenses, loss of anticipated earnings, pain and suffering, and loss of benefits. There is a specified amount of time the lawsuit must be filed in as well as certain elements that need to be met. It is important to consult an experienced injury attorney if a loved one has died after an accident or injury to determine your options and be aware of all the damages that can be awarded.

Other factors that determine the amount rewarded in a wrongful death case include:

  • Medical bills resulting from the accident
  • Damaged personal property
  • Loss of insurance benefits and income
  • Financial burden of dependents
  • Grief and loss of companionship
  • Funeral Expenses
  • Punitive damages to punish the defendant for their wrongdoing
