The Support You Need For Your Wrongful Death Claim
When negligent or unsafe conduct leads to a person’s death, the next of kin of the deceased are entitled to compensation. In Illinois, compensation for wrongful death includes grief and sorrow of the family, loss of society and companionship of the family, and loss of economic support. Our juries determine the amount of compensation without any arbitrary caps or limits on damages that some less enlightened states have.
The estate of a deceased person may also obtain compensation for the pain and suffering of the deceased before the death, as well as medical, funeral and burial expenses.
At Pfaff, Gill & Ports, Ltd., we have extensive success in representing families who have lost a loved one. We focus on helping you seek justice and secure fair and reasonable damages.
