More than $3 Billion Recovered For Our Clients

Allow us to assist you with filing a wrongful death claim

Losing a loved one is never easy, but it is even more difficult for survivors to accept when their loved one's death is attributable to another's negligence or misconduct. When that is the case, Illinois survivors may be able to file a claim for wrongful death.

To successfully pursue a wrongful death lawsuit, specific elements must be present:

-- The person must have died.

-- The death was due to another person's intent to inflict harm, or their negligence.

-- Survivors must suffer negative financial impact due to the death.

-- A personal representative must be appointed for the estate of the deceased.

Wrongful death cases can develop from many types of fatal scenarios, but not all deaths will fit into this category. It can be quite challenging for distraught survivors to think clearly while they are mourning their loss. At The Gori Law Firm, we can provide advice and counsel at this critical juncture.

Wrongful death cases often require quick legal action in order to preserve evidence to substantiate the survivors' claim. Our attorneys can get right to work on the legal aspects of the case, allowing family members to attend to funeral and burial arrangements and grieve for their lost loved one.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding the wrongful death, compensation can include punitive damages as well as compensation for medical and funeral expenses, loss of companionship and future income.

Allow yourself the time to work through your grief without worrying about the legal details of a wrongful death case. To learn more about the ways we can assist you, contact our attorneys for a confidential case assessment and review.
