The death of a loved one is a tragedy no matter how it occurs. Yet, when death is preventable and only occurs because of another’s negligence, the depression, anger, and sense of hopelessness is even more difficult to overcome. Here at Brassfield, Krueger & Ramlow, Ltd., our Illinois wrongful death attorneys have been pursuing justice on behalf of victims for over 75 years. If your loved one was taken away too soon, and would still be alive today if not for another person or business’s careless or reckless behavior, you have the option to hold that party responsible by pursuing maximum compensation. Obviously, no amount of money will right the wrong that has been dealt to your loved one and your family, but holding the negligent party accountable for their actions can go a long way in feeling that justice, in at least some small way, has been served.
Two of the top 10 causes of unintentional death, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are motor vehicle collisions and falls. Another major cause of unintentional death is medical malpractice. In fact, a recent study by John Hopkins found that between 250,000 and 440,000 people die from medical mistakes every single year, according to CNBC, which would make medical errors the third leading cause of all deaths in the U.S. Whenever another party is responsible for taking a life, they must be held accountable. When the death was unintentional, the only way to do this is to file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit against that party. Our attorneys are experienced in all of the following types of wrongful death claims:
The cost of losing a loved one is enormous, both emotionally as well as financially. In addition to seeking justice, a wrongful death claim will help you and your family cope with the financial toll that has been dealt to you. Wrongful death compensation includes medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, loss of joy of life, lost earnings, funeral and burial expenses, and more.
