Wrongful Death Lawsuit Frequently Asked Questions

What is wrongful death?

The idea behind a wrongful death lawsuit is a wrongful death, in addition to injuring the person who died, also brought harm to the people who depended on that individual for financial and/or emotional support. The wrongful act might be a negligent or careless act, a reckless act, or an intentional harmful act.

What is the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim?

Illinois law sets the timeframe for filing. Time begins with the time of the incident/the moment that the party became aware of or discovered the injury.

The state will not honor a wrongful death claim filed after the legislated timeframe, and the opportunity to recover damages for the family will be forever lost. To find out how much time you have to file a wrongful death lawsuit in Illinois, contact Friend, Levinson & Turner LTD.
