Chicago Wrongful Death Attorney
Wrongful death claims mean that a person, business, hospital or other institution wrongfully caused the death of someone else. Wrongful death claims can arise in many different types of cases: auto cases, medical malpractice cases, and nursing home cases are just a few types.
In a wrongful death claim the people that relied on the deceased person have legal rights. For example, if a construction worker wrongfully perishes at a worksite, his spouse and children have legal rights to financial compensation. They may claim lost income as well as loss of society that accompanies the loss of a loved one.
If someone else's wrongful behavior has caused you to lose your loved one, contact an attorney immediate. Acting quickly to protect your rights helps to preserve evidence and ultimately makes your chances of obtaining justice that much better.
