When a loved one has died as a result of the negligence or reckless conduct of another, the family members have a right to be compensated for this terrible tragedy through the Illinois court system. Unlike a personal injury case where the injured person brings the lawsuit, in a wrongful death action the family members bring the lawsuit. Some common causes of wrongful death cases include:
- Car Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Work-Related Injuries
- Construction Accidents
- Medical Malpractice
The wrongful death of a loved one can often leave family members with considerable expenses including hospital bills and funeral and burial costs. These costs are recoverable, in addition to the compensation you are entitled to for your emotional loss. Potential damages include loss of companionship, sorrow and grief, as well as loss of future wages.
