What Is a Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

A wrongful death lawsuit is a legal claim brought by the family of a deceased victim of negligence – whether the victim of a fatal auto accident, a personal injury accident, a dangerous or defective product, or medical malpractice. Wrongful death lawsuits involve complex legal issues of liability and damages.  If you have lost a loved one in a fatal auto accident or as a result of medical malpractice, it is highly recommended that you consult with a knowledgeable and experienced wrongful death attorney like the Chicago fatal auto accident attorneys at Cogan & Power.

At Cogan & Power, our compassionate Chicago wrongful death attorneys understand that no amount of money can ease the pain that you are feeling following the death of a loved one.

Medical bills
Funeral expenses
Loss of future income and benefits
Loss of future inheritance
Loss of parental guidance

(if decedent has minor children)
