Losing a close friend or family member is nearly always a tragedy.

Trusted Wrongful Death Counsel in Cook County, IL

The reality is that no amount of money can ever truly ease the anguish of losing a loved one in an incident that could have been prevented. The value of your loved one's life cannot be reduced to dollars and cents. However, our lawyers know that by initiating a wrongful death claim, you may be able to collect financial damages for:

  • The medical expenses your loved one incurred prior to his or her death
  • Funeral expenses and the costs of burial or cremation
  • Your loved one's lost income and work benefits
  • The loss of your loved one's services and support to your family

In particularly egregious cases of negligence or intentional wrongful acts, punitive damages may also be awarded to help ensure that the at-fault party does not force another family to endure a similar tragedy.

Serving Surviving Family Members in Park Ridge and Des Plaines

A wrongful death cause of action can arise in nearly any type of accident situation. Our attorneys are equipped to handle wrongful death claims related to:

According to Illinois law, the immediate family of the victim of a fatal accident may be eligible for compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. Generally, it is the victim's spouse and any children who could receive compensation. The decedent's parents may be eligible in some instances also. The claim itself, however, must be filed by an appointed "special administrator" of the victim's estate. This individual may be another family member or a friend who was named as a fiduciary in the victim's will or was appointed by the court solely for the purposes of the wrongful death action.

At Kaiser Hafezi Law, our lawyers understand that the road to compensation in a wrongful death case can be extremely difficult, but we have the tools and resources to help you succeed. Our firm works closely with a large network of experts from a variety of fields, including science, engineering, medicine, and finance, whose input is often valuable in establishing that the at-fault party was negligent. With the help of our trusted experts, we will determine what your family will need to move forward and work toward the favorable outcome you deserve in the wake of your suffering.
