Wrongful Death Suits Helping Families Move Forward

The exact options you have available depend on the specific nature of the accident that led to the wrongful death of your loved one. We will work with investigators and other experts to find options that protect your rights:

  • Third-party claims: If someone other than your loved one's employer or a co-worker was responsible for the conditions that led to his or her accident, you can file a third-party wrongful death claim. There is no limit to how much you can collect in these cases.
  • Workers' compensation: The survivor benefit under Illinois workers' compensation will protect your family, but it does not offer very much. That is why it is best to determine if you may have a third-party claim.
Wrongful Death In Construction Accidents

Third-party wrongful death claims are common in construction accidents because there are so many different parties on construction sites, and with so many dangers on a construction site, fatal accidents are common. Families of subcontractors can often pursue claims against other subcontractors or general contractors.
