Wrongful Death

The loss of a loved one is very difficult under any circumstances. It is especially hard to take when someone else's negligence caused the death. At Ackerman Law Office we understand the loss. We have helped thousands of injury victims including loved ones suffering after a tragic loss where someone died.

In Illinois the family recovers for the loss of their loved one. This includes:

  • The funeral bill
  • Medical expenses associated with the last illness
  • Loss of society - companionship
  • Loss of earnings for the family
  • Loss of benefits, like pension and health insurance
  • Pain and suffering associated with the death

There is no amount of money that can make up for the loss of a family member. However, any death has significant financial issues. At Ackerman Law Office we provide effective, aggressive representation for clients.

Our initial consultation for wrongful death claims are free. We will discuss with you the issues involving the claim, giving advice for free to the victims of anothers' negligent conduct.

We handle wrongful death claims on a contingent fee, which means we only take a fee if we recover for our client.

All our clients get prompt action and personal attention.
