Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers works with families who have lost loved ones from childbirth, automobile crashes, product malfunctions, and many other kinds of disasters. We know that during these times the thing you need more than anything else is information.

The critical point to realize after one of your family or loved ones passes away in an accident or incident caused by an individual or company is that Illinois offers you relief and compensation. The Illinois legislature enacted the Wrongful Death Act (740 ILCS 180) just for this situation. It provides damages to surviving spouses and next of kin for the toll that the decedent’s absence places on them. In order to succeed on this cause of action, you must demonstrate that the offender caused your loved one’s death and that you suffered injury because of it. If you can prove this, then you can recover for the loss of support, services, and companionship that the death caused you as well as any expenses (such as burial) that arose following his or her passing. The following articles review fundamental issues in Illinois wrongful death litigation. Contact us if you have any other questions.

Client Reviews
Jonathan Rosenfeld was professionally objective, timely, and knowledgeable. Also, his advice was extremely effective regarding my case.

★★★★★
Extremely impressed with this law firm. They took control of a bad motorcycle crash that left my uncle seriously injured. Without any guarantee of a financial recovery, they went out and hired accident investigators and engineers to help prove how the accident happened. I am grateful that they worked on a contingency fee basis as there was no way we could have paid for these services on our own. Ethan Armstrong, Google User
★★★★★
This lawyer really helped me get compensation for my motorcycle accident case. I know there is no way that I could have gotten anywhere near the amount that Mr. Rosenfeld was able to get to settle my case. Thank you. Daniel Kaim, Avvo User
