Will County Wrongful Death Attorney

Wrongful Death Lawyer Serving Plainfield, Naperville, and Throughout Northern Illinois

Plainfield Wrongful Death Lawyer

Losing a loved one is always tragic. Losing a loved one due to the actions or negligence of others is almost unbearable. At Flaherty Law, we understand how difficult it can be to deal with the death of a loved one or family member, and when the death was caused by another, we are prepared to go to work on your behalf. While no court in any state can adequately place a dollar value on the life of your loved one, you may be entitled to compensation to assist with bills, to replace lost income, and to generally help you rebuild your own life following the loss.

Understanding Wrongful Death in Illinois

Under the law in Illinois, a wrongful death is a loss of life caused by “wrongful act, neglect or default” of another person. According to the state’s Wrongful Death Act, (740 ILCS 180), if the act or negligence would have been actionable as a personal injury claim if only injuries had been caused instead of death, a claim for wrongful death may be brought against the liable party. This means that wrongful death claims may be found in all areas of personal injury law.

Attorney Daniel Flaherty is a hardworking personal injury lawyer who understands the civil court system in Illinois. His prior experience in personal injury defense gives a unique perspective and significant advantage in protecting the rights of injured clients and the family members of wrongful death victims. He is fully prepared to help your family seek full justice for a wrongful death caused by the actions or negligence of others in situations such as:

Compensation for Wrongful Death

Wrongful death claims are most commonly filed by immediately family members of the deceased person, including spouses, children, parents, or siblings. The claimants must file within a specific period of time, and may seek compensatory damages, meaning compensation that accounts for the loss of their loved one based on measurable and provable criteria. These generally include the costs of medical and funeral bills, lost benefits or inheritances from the untimely death, pain and suffering by the survivors, and loss of companionship.
