Deadly Car Accidents in Illinois
Across Illinois, there were 772 crashes on average reported each day in 2011. That same year, 918 people lost their lives in Iillinois vehicle collisions. That is nearly two people being killed daily.
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 an Illinois 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.
