Your Loved One’s Death Has a Cost—We’ll Determine What That Cost Is

Wrongful Death LawsuitsThe loss of a loved one can shatter your world, and it can be difficult to immediately understand the full extent of your damages. Our firm will determine the economic and non-economic cost of your loved one’s passing, which may include:

Pain and Suffering

We know the suffering that results from a loved one’s passing, which can include:

  • Grief (which can be debilitating in some cases)
  • Depression
  • Anxiety about the present and future
  • Thoughts of self-harm
  • Lost quality of life

Data suggests that those affected by unexpected deaths may experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Our team will consider PTSD and any other forms of pain and suffering you face because of a loved one’s passing.

Loss of Consortium

You must receive compensation reflecting the non-economic benefits you have lost because of your loved one’s death. The loss of a spouse’s companionship and a parent’s guidance are examples of lost consortium.

Your Chicago wrongful death lawyer will learn who your loved one was, including the value they brought to your life. Your settlement demands will mirror the non-economic losses from your loved one’s passing.

Funeral Costs and Other Expenses

You may face several unexpected expenses related to your loved one’s passing, which may include:

  • Funeral expenses
  • Burial or cremation expenses
  • Medical costs
  • Vehicle repairs (in cases related to auto accidents)
  • Replacement of damaged property

As we build your case, we will consider any property expenses you face because of other parties’ negligence.

Lost Financial Support

When you lose a loved one, you may lose both direct and indirect financial support, including lost:

  • Income (through the decedent’s likely age of retirement)
  • Benefits from the decedent’s employer
  • Skills the decedent provided their household, such as handiwork and investment services
  • Security the decedent afforded their household members

If you must pay for any service or suffer any financial hardship because of a loved one’s passing, we will factor those services and hardships into your lawsuit.

The pain of losing a loved one may be the most glaring type of harm you suffer. We will consider such pain but also other financial and non-financial damages you’ve suffered.

Services to Expect from Your Chicago Wrongful Death Lawyer

When you’ve lost a loved one (expectedly or unexpectedly), your sole focus should be on your well-being. While a wrongful death lawsuit may be necessary and even essential to your recovery, it may be wise to let an attorney take your case off your hands.

Midwest Injury Lawyers will oversee every detail of your lawsuit, including:

  • Communications and paperwork: Two important details of any wrongful death case, communications and paperwork, will be our responsibility. This includes dealing with insurance companies and civil defense lawyers, who may work against your case’s success.
  • Case strategy: Each of our cases warrants a personalized strategy, as each person affected by a wrongful death is unique. We will gather all relevant information about your loved one’s passing and identify the most appropriate strategy for your circumstances.
  • Evidence collection: We will seek evidence of liable parties’ negligence, which is key in proving fault for your loved one’s death. Our team will obtain any evidence that can help your case, such as photographs of dangerous premises that led to a fall, or eyewitness testimony of an accident that proved fatal.
  • Documentation of your damages: We will use documentation to prove the harm your loved one’s death has caused. The documentation we collect may include funeral-related invoices, testimony from mental health professionals, and proof of the decedent’s past income.
  • Calculation of damages: After gathering all relevant information about your economic and non-economic damages, we will calculate the exact monetary cost of your loved one’s passing. If necessary, we will hire mental health experts, economists, and other professionals familiar with wrongful deaths to help calculate your damages.
  • Settlement negotiations: Midwest Injury Lawyers will negotiate a settlement on your behalf. Though settlements are the most common way to secure compensation in a civil case, a wrongful death case may prove more challenging than most. Even if liable parties present a defensive negotiation tactic, we will demand all the compensation you deserve.
  • Trial, if necessary: Our team will be prepared for trial if we do not obtain a fair settlement offer for any reason. We anticipate the possibility of trial in every case we handle, so we are always ready if liable parties refuse to settle fairly.

Our firm understands that wrongful deaths can cause long-term psychiatric issues, immense financial hardship, and other consequences that you may not be ready for. Liable parties must account for these consequences by paying the compensation you deserve. Our team serving Chicago will work to hold liable parties accountable for their negligent actions.

We Know You’re Facing Financial Uncertainty After Your Loss, and Our Fee Structure Protects You

Every client we represent faces financial hardship or uncertainty. You may come to us seeking financial relief, and we start by structuring our fees in a client-friendly way.

When you choose Midwest Injury Lawyers to lead your case in Chicago, we:

  • Require no immediate compensation from you
  • Do not charge by the hour or require you to pay a flat rate
  • Only ask that you provide us a percentage of any settlement or judgment we obtain for you
  • Explain exactly how our fee structure works in regard to your case
  • Cover every case-related expense, including expert fees

Because we link our fee to your case’s success, we have added an incentive to secure as much compensation as possible for you. This arrangement also spares you from paying any out-of-pocket fees or costs

Consider the Challenging Nature of Wrongful Death Cases

Wrongful Death CasesAs you decide whether to hire a wrongful death lawyer from our firm, you should know that:

  • Wrongful death cases can bring stress: Legal cases are never easy and can be unpleasant in several respects. You will have to face the details of your loved one’s passing, and many of our clients hire us because they are not willing to face those details. Hiring our firm may help you move forward from your loss without inflicting added trauma and stress.
  • Wrongful death cases can cost thousands of dollars: Your case may prove expensive, especially if a lawsuit goes to trial. Allow Midwest Injury Lawyers to pay the entire upfront cost of your case rather than paying the cost from your own pocket.
  • Completing a lawsuit requires technical knowledge: Many wrongful death cases require filing and completing a lawsuit. If you do not know this process, you may invest substantial time and effort trying to learn it. You may even invest much time and effort and then still fail to secure the financial result you seek.
  • Our attorneys offer the experience and legal training your case will require: Rather than spending your own time, money, and energy trying to complete your case on your own, why not lean on our attorneys? We know how to complete wrongful death cases and are confident that we can obtain the justice you deserve.
  • You face high stakes in your case: You must also consider what will happen if you handle your own case and fail to succeed. You may bear long-term financial burdens, and you may feel that you did not hold liable parties accountable for your loved one’s death.

While no law firm can guarantee they’ll win a wrongful death case, Midwest Injury Lawyers has much to offer you. From our accomplished attorneys to financial resources without limit, there is plenty of reason to hire our team for your wrongful death case in Chicago.

Chicago Wrongful Death FAQs

What Can a Chicago Wrongful Death Lawyer Do For You?

The careless actions of another party can cause a wrongful death. If someone you love loses their life in this manner, you can have a wrongful death claim on your hands.

Our Chicago wrongful death attorneys perform many critical jobs that will help you achieve the best outcome possible after the needless loss of a loved one. They can build your case to include all liable parties, highlight the damages you’ve suffered, and negotiate to help you avoid going to court. If litigation is necessary,

they can ensure they file your lawsuit on time and show the court why your family deserves compensation for the loss of your loved one.

With the help of our well-versed attorneys, a wrongful death lawsuit can also help pay for the high medical expenses and other costs incurred due to your loved one’s injuries before their death. It can also help provide financial support for those who have lost an income because of an injury or an unforeseen death. Legal action might also help prevent a similar tragedy from happening to other families. Sometimes a personal injury lawsuit is the only way to hold offenders and big companies liable for actions that put consumers at risk.

If you lose a loved one because of another party’s carelessness and negligence, you may hold them accountable for their actions. A wrongful death attorney can’t turn back the clock to make things as they were before the car accident. However, they help you obtain compensation for the awful, unexpected losses caused in your life.

What About the Criminal Case?

In some instances, there may be criminal charges against someone for causing or contributing to the cause of your loved one’s death. For example, if your loved one was killed by a drunk driver, an assailant, or their significant other. Criminal cases don’t rely on civil wrongful death cases or vice versa. Your loved one’s personal representative can file a wrongful death lawsuit, regardless of what is going on in criminal court concerning their death.

However, if a court finds someone guilty of causing or contributing to your loved one’s death, it can help a civil wrongful death claim. With an experienced Chicago wrongful death lawyer by your side, you can work toward justice in both criminal and civil courts on behalf of your loved one.

How Long Do Wrongful Death Cases Take?

This is a common question that our lawyers hear from grieving families. Unfortunately, there is no hard and fast rule about how long an Illinois wrongful death case can take.

Many variables will make this determination, such as how many parties are involved, how the death occurred, how strong the evidence is for the injured party, and the schedule of the courts. While some cases will result in a full and fair settlement in only a few months, others may take a year or two. Rest assured; your attorney will be by your side, advocating for you through the entire process, no matter how long it takes.
