Deadly Car Accidents in Illinois
Each year, car crashes are the leading cause of death and serious injury in Illinois. In 2018, 36,560 people were killed in car accidents across the country. In Illinois, 1% of reported crashes resulted in fatal injuries in 2017.
The grief and devastation of losing a loved one due to someone else’s negligence is nearly unbearable. Surviving family members may be able to recover lost compensation by pursuing a wrongful death claim. In a wrongful death lawsuit, a representative of the decedent’s estate – usually a close family member – seeks damages from those at fault for the person’s death.
At Kent M. Lucaccioni, Ltd., we understand the grief and pain that families experience when a family member is killed. While no amount of money can bring back a lost family member, a wrongful death lawsuit can help families address the financial difficulties associated with the accident.
