Wrongful Death Lawyer, Des Plaines
A wrongful death is a death that has been caused by the fault of another person. For example, deaths caused by a drunk driver, a dangerous or defective product, unsafe building construction, negligence in a nursing home or hospital, failing to diagnose a disease, and more.
Wrongful death lawsuits or claims are generally filed by family members or beneficiaries of the person who died. When you contact us, our wrongful death lawyers will help you determine who in your family may file the wrongful death lawsuit. In some instances, these claims are filed to obtain monetary damages to cover the earnings the deceased person would have provided. Other damages that may be recovered include:
- Expenses associated with the death, such as medical and funeral bills
- Lost benefits, such as insurance, from the death
- Loss of inheritance from an untimely death
- Pain, suffering or mental anguish suffered by the survivor of the decedent
- Loss of companionship, care or protection
- Punitive damages, intended to punish wrongdoers and prevent them from harming others
Any premature death is a tragedy, but when it comes at the hands of a stranger indicating disregard it can feel even more painful.
