Who Can Bring a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
Under the Illinois Wrongful Death Act and Survival Statute, certain blood relatives may bring a wrongful death lawsuit to recover compensation for their loved ones’ death. Typically, spouses and children can bring wrongful death actions, though other family members (such as parents and siblings) may do so if the accident victim died without a spouse or child.
What Can You Recover After a Fatal Car Crash?
You may be able to recover the following damages if your loved one was killed in an auto collision:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of income, including compensation for money, benefits, goods and services that your loved one supplied in the past and would have contributed in the future
- Loss of consortium, or the loss of marital benefits
- Loss of parental guidance/the services a parent offers a child
- Pain and suffering
- Other damages resulting from the accident and your loved one’s death
Our law firm has an extensive network of experts, including financial experts, that we will use to help determine how much compensation you should receive.
