Chicago Wrongful Death Lawyers
Serious Representation for Fatal Injuries
The death of a loved one is never easy. When the death was caused by someone else’s carelessness, it can be even more difficult to deal with. During this time, a trusted attorney can help hold the at-fault individual responsible while you and your family concentrate on what is most important — grieving.
At the Law Offices of Leonard S. Becker, we offer compassionate legal guidance to clients who have lost family members due to another’s negligence. We understand this is a challenging time and want to help you through it. While we cannot make up for your loss, we can help right the wrong by pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit.
Experienced in Handing Wrongful Death Claims
In Illinois, the victim’s family, those most dependent upon the decedent for financial support, is entitled to bring a claim against the negligent party. As your lawyers, we will thoroughly investigate the fatal accident, uncovering and evaluating all relevant evidence. After determining liability, we will pursue maximum compensation for damages such as grief, sorrow, mental suffering and financial losses associated with the death.
We have represented clients throughout the Chicago area in wrongful death cases involving:
- Car and truck accidents
- Bus and train accidents
- Work injuries
- Bicycle collisions
- Slip-and-fall incidents
As your legal advocates, we will aggressively pursue the compensation you need while you focus on your family. Our firm handles wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis. That means you don’t pay us anything until we recover compensation for you and your family.
Related to wrongful death actions, survival claims compensate a decedent’s estate for any physical pain and mental suffering the victim suffered between the onset of the fatal injury and the time of death. During a complimentary consultation our attorneys will explain who is eligible to file a survival claim and how they work.
