Deadly Car Accidents in Chicago
There were an estimated 772 crashes reported daily across Illinois in 2011. That year, 918 people were killed in vehicle collisions statewide. Tens of thousands more were injured. 918 deaths. That means two people were killed
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 claim, 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.
