Wrongful Death

Loss of a Loved One Through the Negligence of Others

Losing a family member is always hard, but it can be unbearable to know that an accidental death was easily preventable. A wrongful death action holds the negligent party accountable for the economic impact and the emotional void.

Kelly & King, P.C., will vigorously pursue damages on behalf of the survivors. We take on the legal burdens so that families can focus on grieving and putting their lives back together. Our law firm has recovered wrongful death compensation through verdicts and settlements in a range of cases.

We take cases in Cook County and DuPage County and throughout the Chicago area. Contact us today to arrange a free consultation.

Fatal Accident Lawyers

Our seasoned trial lawyers are effective advocates for grieving families in part because of our background in insurance defense. We can anticipate the barriers that defendants and insurers will put up to deny or downplay compensation.

Kelly & King, P.C., has recovered wrongful death compensation for fatal auto and truck accidents, for construction accidents and other workplace deaths, and for deaths resulting from medical malpractice. We are familiar with Illinois wrongful death law and associated probate actions required to open the estate of the deceased.

Damages for wrongful death can include:

  • Medical expenses and funeral costs
  • Loss of projected earnings
  • Loss of companionship, society, support and guidance
  • Loss of household contributions

If the deceased was the breadwinner, we work to ensure that the survivors have financial security for the years ahead.

Wrongful Death Attorneys

Wrongful death cases are more complex and take longer to resolve than most injury claims. A simple settlement out of court may not be feasible. We have the resources to fund a sophisticated investigation into negligence at the root of the accident, and we are prepared to go all the way to trial to get justice for our clients.

Our lawyers will pursue compensation from all liable parties, and we will keep you informed at every step of this daunting process. To arrange a consultation, call 312-553-5290 or 800-331-6995, or contact us online.
