WHAT IS WRONGFUL DEATH?

Wrongful death is a legal term defined as death that occurs due to the negligence of another person. Meaning, if the negligence or reckless conduct of another person or entity causes a person to die, loved ones and survivors of the deceased can file a wrongful death lawsuit to help them recover damages for their losses. 


Comparative fault laws in Illinois allow family members and eligible parties to receive compensation from the at fault and responsible parties for the death of their loved ones. The requirement to receive compensation in Illinois is that the deceased is not more responsible for the accident than the defendant. 


FILING A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM IN ILLINOIS

Before filing a wrongful death claim in Illinois, determine the exact financial damage that has occurred to the loved ones and survivors. This can be a difficult task. 


There are many different ways that the deceased contributed to the financial situation and upkeep of the survivors. Such contributions can include future earnings, pension benefits, including other earnings that the deceased could have continued to earn if he had lived. 


DETERMINING LOSSES

Determining these damages will require expert help to understand the kind of losses that family members and survivors have suffered, and will continue to suffer in the years ahead. Meaning, it is very important to calculate short-term economic loss and expected long-term economic implications of the death. 


When all the factors have been decided, and damages established, survivors can proceed with the filing of a wrongful death lawsuit.
