Wrongful Death

After the loss of a loved one, the prospect of filing a wrongful death claim can be particularly difficult to deal with. ACME Law Offices in Chicago is made up of attorneys specializing in wrongful death cases and can offer a helping hand to those coping with the shocking and painful aftermath of a wrongful death. We can provide much needed advice for clients hoping to recover emotional and monetary damages for the loss of someone close to them. Our office understands the complexity of each individual case, and will work one-on-one with clients to ensure that they will receive the damages that they are entitled to.

In the case of wrongful death, we can aid those experiencing loss of companionship, financial loss, and mental pain and suffering. In Illinois and Wisconsin, wrongful death lawsuits can be filed if a loved one dies due to the fault of another person. This can be due to negligence, which may arise from an auto accident, defective product, construction injury, etc... Although a person has died, their family members may be permitted compensation for any medical bills, pain and suffering, or funeral costs that may have accumulated over time. One of the main purposes of filing a wrongful death suit is to lessen the financial stress of the family members of the deceased. Although no monetary compensation can make up for the loss of a loved one, it is the first step towards gaining justice after such a traumatic event.
