Few events are more traumatic than the loss of a family member in a fatal accident. In addition to the emotional pain, your family may face complex legal and financial issues. At Dickler, Kahn, Slowikowski & Zavell, Ltd. in Arlington Heights, our lawyers have many years of experience in dealing with the legal and financial issues following a wrongful death. We have successfully represented families throughout Illinois including Cook County, DuPage County, Will County, Lake County, Champaign County, Kankakee County, Madison County, Piatt County, Randolph County, and Sangmon County who have lost loved ones in car accidents, through medical negligence, and as a result of nursing home neglect.
When a death is the result of another person’s careless or negligent actions, the family members may be entitled to recover compensation for damages such as medical expenses incurred prior to death, funeral expenses, lost financial support, and lost personal services performed by the decedent. While nothing can bring your family member back, pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit can help the survivors recover financial losses resulting from the death.
Most of the clients we serve in wrongful death cases come to us because they have questions about the death. Those responsible for the death may provide a version of events that is designed to shield themselves from liability. It often takes a lawyer’s assistance to get at the truth and help the family obtain closure.
Our lawyers handle all wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis. If we are unable to recover compensation for your family, you will not be charged any attorneys’ fees.
A few of the recoveries obtained for our clients include:
- $2,200,000 wrongful death settlement – medical malpractice
- $1,650,000 wrongful death settlement – medical malpractice
- $13,000,000 wrongful death & survival judgment
- $850,000 wrongful death settlement
