Attorneys Fighting For Families After Wrongful Death

No one ever wants to see loved ones die. When this occurs as a result of someone else’s negligence or malice, it is all the more painful. Although no amount of compensation will bring back the family member you have lost, the person responsible should be held liable. You deserve to be compensated for the losses you have suffered.

At the law office of Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd., our lawyers have represented the families of the victims of wrongful death for over 55 years in Chicago and throughout the surrounding areas of Illinois. We 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. We take care of our clients by listening and walking each client through the legal process personally.

Wrongful Death Laws In Illinois

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, the brothers and sisters of the deceased person may also be able to pursue a claim.

We have a track record of successful wrongful death claims and many satisfied clients.

Medical bills . . . just a lot of uncertainty, fear and just being taken great advantage of, my settlement is only a few dollars, less than $4,000, this is in no way due to lack of working hard and vigorously for me [sic].”
