For more than 35 years, our firm has represented families dealing with the tragedy of a wrongful death. While a majority of wrongful death cases settle prior to trial, they are more complex than most people imagine. We know how to show the cause of the death, demonstrate negligence, and present the monetary damages caused by the death. Under Illinois law a surviving spouse, children, beneficiaries, and dependents are able to collect compensation for a wide range of economic damages:
- Pain and suffering prior to the death
- Medical bills associated with the accident
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of earnings the deceased would have earned in their lifetime
- Loss of benefits, including pensions and health insurance
- Loss of inheritance
- Loss of companionship
While we know that no amount of money can compensate for the loss of a family member, we also recognize that there are significant financial issues associated with unexpected deaths. We are committed to providing compassionate representation that enables our clients to concentrate on family and friends, while we focus on their legal matters. Our sole objective in wrongful death cases is to help ensure that our clients get the respect, response, and results® they deserve.
How much do you charge?
There is no charge or obligation for your first visit or telephone call. We work on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay attorney's fees up front; your attorney gets paid only if he or she recovers money for you, either by settlement or jury verdict.
