Rockford Attorneys Handle Your Wrongful Death Case with Care and Compassion

Ensuring justice for your loved one

Dealing with a loved one’s death is incredibly difficult — and even more so if it was preventable, caused by another person’s negligence. At Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd., we’ve spent more than seven decades easing our clients through the tragedy of wrongful death and aggressively representing them in their pursuit of a positive verdict or settlement. Our attorneys help you prove that the person responsible was negligent in his or her duty of care, and then document your losses to hold the liable party financially accountable. While money cannot make up for your loss, it can give you peace of mind, knowing that justice has been served.

Rockford lawyers handle the complexities of wrongful death cases

Wrongful death is the death of a person caused by the negligence or wrongful conduct of another person or entity. Common causes of wrongful death include drunk driving, defective products, unsound building structures, failure to diagnose a fatal disease or misdiagnosis. Regardless of the circumstances surrounding the death, our experienced wrongful death attorneys provide zealous representation in seeking to hold the negligent party accountable. Whether you’re a surviving spouse, sibling, child or other family member, the attorneys at Brassfield & Krueger, Ltd., offer a straightforward evaluation of your case to determine if you’re entitled to compensation.

Are you seeking justice and compensation for a wrongful death?

More often than not, when you make a claim of wrongful death, the other party’s representatives hire investigators to recover and preserve evidence. Our Rockford personal injury attorneys conduct a thorough investigation of our own to preserve physical evidence, including debris, photographs, and witness statements. We work diligently to counteract claims made by the other party’s accident investigators, bolstering your case and maximizing your compensation.

We won’t waver in our pursuit of compensation for the financial and emotional tolls of wrongful death, including:

  • Funeral and medical bills associated with the death and the deceased’s last illness
  • Loss of earnings for the family and benefits including insurance and pension
  • Punitive damages meant to prevent further wrongful death from occurring
  • Loss of society (companionship) or protection
  • Pain and suffering of the survivors associated with the death
