Wrongful Death Lawyers Chicago
A wrongful death lawsuit is an action filed in court when the wrongful conduct of a person, a company, or some other entity results in the death of another person. Such lawsuits are generally based on state statute, and may allow the close relatives of a person who died as a result of such a wrongful act to recover monetary damages for lost financial and emotional support. Usually, the victim’s surviving spouse, children, beneficiaries or dependents bring such a lawsuit. The wrongful act may be based on a negligent act, a reckless act, or even a deliberate act, such as murder. Prosecution of the alleged wrongdoer in criminal court does not preclude a private, wrongful death suit.
