Death is a part of life, but an unexpected and preventable death is intolerable. Sadly, once a loved one is lost there is nothing that can be done to bring him or her back. Surviving family members may find it hard to go on without the comfort of their loved one’s presence, but time will continue to move forward and life will go on. This means that bills will need to be paid. Those in Illinois who have lost a loved one and the wages that he or she earned may find it difficult to make ends meet.
When the death of a loved one was caused by the negligence of another, and damages resulted from the death, a wrongful death claim may be sought. In a wrongful death claim, you can pursue compensation to help you cover medical expenses, lost wages and other damages such as loss of companionship. Your likelihood of success depends on the strength of your case, though, which can vary depending on how well prepared it is.
