Illinois Wrongful Death Attorneys and Personal Injury Lawyers


In a wrongful death lawsuit, a representative of the decedent’s estate (usually an immediate family member) is seeking damages from those who are responsible for the person’s death. A person may be held responsible for both negligent and intentional acts. The statute of limitations for wrongful death cases is usually within 1-3 years of when the death occurred. (In Illinois the statute of limitations is 2 years from the date of death.) Consequently, it’s important to hire a wrongful death attorney immediately to make sure your case is viable.
