Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim in Illinois?

Wrongful death claims can be brought by the personal representative of the estate of the decedent. Examples include:

  • The surviving spouse of the decedent;
  • Parents of a deceased minor child;
  • Adult children of the decedent; and
  • Any other individual that was appointed personal representative by the decedent.

If no personal representative was appointed, the court may appoint a close relative to carry out these duties. It is important to note that there is a limited time frame in which a wrongful death claim can be filed. In Illinois, the statute of limitations is generally two years from the date of death.

Damages in a Wrongful Death Claim

To be successful in a wrongful death suit, it must be established that the negligent acts of the defendant are the primary cause of the death of your loved one. Once liability is proven, monetary damages may be awarded for:

  • Medical bills;
  • Funeral costs;
  • Loss of future wages;
  • Loss of future benefits (such as pension and health insurance);
  • Loss of inheritance (due to an untimely death);
  • Survivor pain and suffering or mental anguish; and
  • Loss of care, companionship and consortium.

In some extreme cases involving especially egregious acts, punitive damages may be awarded to discourage the defendant from continuing to commit such acts in the future.

Wrongful death cases can be quite complicated and difficult to prove. At Mevorah Law Offices LLC, we work closely with investigators, law enforcement and other professionals to build the strongest case possible on behalf of our clients. Our attorneys have the experience and resources to secure successful outcomes against even well-funded adversaries.
