Understanding the Illinois Wrongful Death Statute

A wrongful death lawsuit is a civil case of action that is designed to allow close loved ones of a deceased victim to get justice and financial support after a fatal accident. They are state-level legal claims. A wrongful death case that arises in Hoffman Estates or elsewhere in Cook County is governed by the Illinois Wrongful Death Act (740 ILCS 180/). 

Eligibility to Bring a Wrongful Death Claim in Hoffman Estates

Unfortunately, not every person who has a close relationship with the victim has the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Illinois law allows certain individuals—typically close family members—to bring this type of claim. The primary claimants are usually the deceased person’s spouse and children. If these individuals are not available, other family members, such as parents or siblings, may be eligible to file the claim. 

Recovering Compensation Through a Wrongful Death Claim

Wrongful death compensation is paid to the eligible family members of a deceased victim. Although no amount of money could ever truly make things right after a fatal accident in Hoffman Estates, families need financial support. A wrongful death settlement or wrongful death verdict may include financial compensation for: 

  • Property damage 
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Out-of-pocket medical bills
  • Loss of financial support
  • Loss of love
  • Loss of companionship 
  • Loss of parental guidance.
