The law offices of Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen, Ltd., has represented the families of the victims of wrongful death for over 55 years. Our Illinois wrongful death attorneys have filed lawsuits arising out of a variety of circumstances including automobile accidents, construction accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, defective products, and falls due to unsafe premises.
The Wrongful Death Statute in Illinois creates a cause of action on behalf of the surviving spouse and/or next-of-kin for the economic and emotional losses suffered when a loved one is tragically killed.
For example, under the law, a surviving spouse is entitled to recover for the loss of the financial support, services, love, and affection caused by the death of one’s spouse. In addition, Senior Partner Bruce Kohen successfully led the effort to amend the law to also include grief and sorrow as additional damages. If the person killed also left any children, each child has a similar cause of action for the loss of financial support, love, companionship, and guidance he or she received from the parent. In addition, brothers and sisters of the deceased person may also be able to pursue a claim.
