Holding Negligent Parties Accountable In The Face Of Tragedy
When someone you love dies tragically and unexpectedly, the grief can be devastating.
When the individual’s death was caused by the negligence or fault of others, it can be even more overwhelming to think the death may have been avoidable. Filing a civil lawsuit is a remedy available under the law. Outside of potential criminal charges, an experienced attorney can assist you in filing a wrongful death suit that seeks fair and just compensation.

We offer a caring and comprehensive approach, focused not only on pursuing rightful compensation but also navigating through an emotionally trying time of grief and uncertainty about the future.
When Is A Wrongful Death Claim The Right Answer?
In the state of Illinois, when a death occurs due to negligence, a civil suit may be filed within two years of an individual’s death. Examples of negligence may include:
- Medical malpractice incidents
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Premises liability issues
Damages can be recovered by the deceased’s spouse and next of kin. Due to an amendment in Illinois, damages can now be awarded for grief and sorrow, which can help the deceased’s family to move forward in life in the absence of their loved one. As these cases can be complex and prolonged matters, it is crucial that you turn to the services of an experienced attorney with a unique grasp on wrongful death cases, such as ours at Martin Law, LLC.
