Chicago Deadly Car Crashes
There were an estimated 772 Illinois car crashes reported daily in 2011. Of those accidents, 835 resulted in fatal injuries. A recorded 918 people statewide lost their lives in vehicle collisions that year.
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 Chicago wrongful death claim, a representative of the decedent’s estate – usually a close family member – seeks damages from those at fault for the person’s death.
