Will County Wrongful Death Attorney

Orland Park and Tinley Park Personal Injury

Coping with the death of a loved one can be one of the hardest things for any person to go through. This is particularly true if a loved one was killed due to the negligence of another person. Certainly the death of a loved one will be an immensely trying and emotional experience, and pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit against the responsible person may not even cross your mind.

It is important, however, to get the process of holding the responsible party liable for the death of your loved one going as soon as you are able to. Whether a car accident, truck accident, medical malpractice, or a motorcycle accident is at issue, it is important that information and evidence gets collected and preserved as soon as possible so that a case can be developed against the negligent party and they can be held fully responsible for their wrongdoings.

When a person’s negligence results in the death of another, they can be held liable for their actions to the family and other loved ones left behind after the accident. While money can never replace a loved one, financial compensation can be sought to compensate those left behind for:

• Medical Bills
• Funeral and Other Final Expenses
• Loss of Wages
• Loss of Benefits and Future Gains
• Loss of Emotional Support

While affixing amounts to medical bills or funeral expenses can be fairly straightforward, it can be much more complicated and complex to affix a monetary value to things like the loss of future gains and emotional support. It takes an experienced attorney with the necessary expertise and resources to make sure that the maximum compensation is able to be proven and awarded to those left behind. With over 30 years of experience representing the families and others left behind after a loved one has been killed due to the negligence of another, I can help you through this difficult time and make sure you get the maximum possible compensation for your loss.
