Wrongful Death in Chicago, Illinois

A wrongful death is any death that is caused by the negligent or intentional actions of an individual either as the result of a motor vehicle accident, a crime, elder abuse, a defective product or even police negligence or brutality. A wrongful death claim can be brought by parents, a spouse, children, siblings, grandparents or grandchildren of the decedent.

Pursuing a wrongful death claim to recover financial compensation can never replace the loss of someone you love, but it is the only tool available to punish the negligent party and try to make a grieving family whole again. You may be able to recover the cost of medical expenses incurred prior to the death, funeral and burial expenses, lost wages, lost future earning potential of the deceased and the pain and suffering caused by your loved one being torn from the family by cruel circumstances beyond their control.

The experienced wrongful death attorneys at The Cochran Firm have a long history of protecting the legal rights of their clients and ensuring that justice is served, no matter where the blame falls and who must be held responsible. Since time limits are involved in a wrongful death claim, it is important you act without delay so your legal rights to financial compensation for your loss are not forfeited forever.

If you live in the Chicago, Illinois area and you have lost someone you love to the negligence or intentional actions of someone else, please contact the experienced wrongful death attorneys at The Cochran Firm today to learn whether you are entitled to financial compensation for your tragic loss.
