Common Accidents that Can Result in Wrongful Death Claims
There is no boundary for the type of death that can count as a wrongful fatality since there are so many variances in these causes. However, it has been found that certain accidents are especially likely to arise from another person’s negligence or malpractice.
Some of these particularly prevalent incidents are caused by:
- Accidents involving cars, trucks, boats, motorcycles, and other vehicles
- Surgical errors, incorrect dosages, negligence of care, and other forms of medical malpractice
- Accidents occurring at construction sites or other incidents taking place at work
- Illnesses and fatal injuries which were the result of toxic, defective, or incorrectly labeled products
How Wrongful Death Claims Work in Illinois
In the state of Illinois, the family members who are able to directly file claims for wrongful death include the spouses who survive the deceased, as well as the direct next of kin. Illinois is unique to other states because family members do not only have to file for the behalf of the deceased and their estate but can make claims based on their own hardships as the survivors of a loved one’s death.
For example, surviving spouses and next of kin can file claims for wrongful death which also account for their own:
- Emotional suffering, depression, grief, and anguish
- Challenges following the loss of a beloved companion
- Lack of present and future income, wages, or benefits
- Financial difficulties resulting from paying for the funeral or other expenses related to the loved one’s death
