As Chicago Wrongful Death Lawyers, we have successfully handled many wrongful death cases over the years. The Illinois Wrongful Death Act provides a means of recovery for those surviving family members who have lost a loved one due to negligence. The Act permits recovery to be obtained for loss of society as well as grief and sorrow of the surviving spouse, children, and next of kin.
There are also cases, filed under the Illinois Survival Act, that can be brought for damages sustained by the deceased following an accident such as conscious pain and suffering.
These cases can also seek as an element of damage the future earnings that the deceased would have earned had the accident not occurred. Economists and other experts can be hired to testify as to the nature and extent of these losses.
In 2013, we obtained a $2.0 million dollar settlement for a family in a wrongful death/personal injury case involving a tractor-trailer/minivan accident.
In 2006, we obtained a $1.5 million dollar settlement in a malpractice case for the wrongful death of a patient following a kidney biopsy.
