Was Someone Responsible for Your Child's Death?
The Death of a Child
A child's death is a tragic event. If you have suffered the loss of a son or daughter, we extend our sincere sympathy. Certainly, there is no way we can relieve a parent's grief. In our role as personal injury attorneys, we shoulder our client's financial and legal burdens, allowing our client to focus on healing; we investigate the circumstances surrounding a fatal accident in order to shed light on negligence; we insist that the parties who are responsible take measures to prevent future, similar accidents.
The circumstances surrounding a child death may determine possible wrongful death claims. A swimming pool drowning may have been the result of negligence on the part of the owner of the property or the manufacturer of equipment. A birth trauma may have been an unavoidable accident, or the result of medical malpractice. Our attorneys work closely with scientific and medical experts to determine the cause of our client's loss.
If you would like to speak with one of our lawyers, please contact our Chicago firm, Lane & Lane, LLC. As difficult as it is, it is important to take measures soon after a fatal accident, to preserve your right, as a parent, to a wrongful death claim.
Evaluating a claim for the death of a child
A father, mother or adoptive parent is entitled, under Illinois law, to compensation for the loss of a child's companionship, for the parent's grief, sorrow and mental suffering, and for medical expenses and funeral expenses related to the cause of death. Our lawyers work with occupational and financial experts to see that our clients receive all compensation available under the law.
