Wrongful Death Law
The death of a loved one is unimaginable, and the pain, distress, overwhelming expenses, and questions that follow are not easy to handle. When that loved one’s death is caused by negligence, misconduct, carelessness, or general disregard of another, it is considered a wrongful death. Grieving family members may file a Chicago wrongful death lawsuit and receive the compensation they deserve to aid in the costs associated with their loss.
While the victim of an accident pays the ultimate price, the agony and grief can take a toll on the surviving family members, and that reason is why our firm is so dedicated to helping and fighting for them to receive compensation for their loss. In fact, TorHoerman Law operates a contingency fee basis for all Chicago wrongful death lawsuits. So, we are as dedicated as our clients to get the best outcome for their cases.
Sadly, wrongful death accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. While “wrongful death” is a broad term, it can encompass a number of accidents caused by the carelessness of another – a car accident caused by a driver running a red light, surgical negligence in which the incorrect operation was performed, or an elderly person abused at a nursing home. The causes are, unfortunately, countless, but if the death was caused by negligence, a Chicago wrongful death claim can be made.
If you have lost a loved one, a wrongful death attorney from TorHoerman Law may be able to help you receive compensation for your loss.
