Wrongful Death Archives

How long can you wait to file an Illinois wrongful death claim?

Regardless of the reason you have lost a loved one to wrongful death, the aftermath is a time of chaos and intense emotions. This is especially the case when your loved one died in a sudden and unexpected manner. It can take the bereaved some time to come to terms with their loss and longer still to decide if taking legal action is an option.

Taking action against wrongful death involving opioids

If you listen to the news or read online articles, you know that America's opioid crisis is in full swing. Like other states, residents of Illinois have been affected by this crisis. According to the state of Illinois, "2,278 drug-related overdose deaths" occurred in 2016. This is nearly double the number of fatal overdoses that occurred in 2013. Clearly, opioid use and overdose is a problem in our state as it is elsewhere.

Many irregularities at the school where an autistic boy drowned

Those who live in Illinois already know about the tragic drowning of a 14-year-old autistic student while he was on school property. As more and more details about the student's death emerge, a picture of the school's lack of appropriate supervision is also coming into focus.

Wrongful death claims versus workers' compensation: Your choices

When you get hurt on the job, you know that you have a right to workers' compensation. What happens if you die at work, though? Are your family members able to file a wrongful death lawsuit, or do they need to accept workers' compensation death benefits instead?
