When you or your family experiences the loss of a loved one because of an unexpected accident, it is one of the most devastating tragedies your family can face. Imagine the additional pain you would feel if you knew it could have been avoided if someone had not been neglectful or careless.

Under the Illinois Wrongful Death Act, families are protected as it allows them to recover economic damages, which includes medical costs before the death, along with the loss of earnings of the victim’s presumed life expectancy. In addition, victims maybe entitled to compensation for loss of society, companionship and consortium. In situations where the victim did not suffer immediate death, under the Illinois Survival Act, the family may be entitled to additional compensation. This includes any physical and mental suffering the deceased person incurs between the time of the accident and the time of the victim’s death.
