Wrongful Death Lawyer serving DuPage, Lake and Cook Counties
A wrongful death claim is defined as the death of a person caused by the conduct or negligence of another individual or company whereby the surviving dependents or beneficiaries are entitled to monetary damages as a result of the negligence of the wrongdoer. In a wrongful death claim, appropriate family members may recover money damages for loss of a relationship, monetary support that the deceased may have provided, loss of love and companionship, medical expenses and other elements. If the family member survived for some period of time after the accident or medical malpractice occurred, the family member’s Estate may be able to recover additional money damages in a SURVIVAL ACTION. These damages may include loss of salary, pain and suffering and additional medical expenses. Essentially, although the law cannot undo the wrong that has been done, it can relieve some of the unexpected burdens imposed upon the surviving family members.
