What is the difference between a wrongful death claim and a standard personal injury lawsuit?
The accident that took place Wednesday night is heartbreaking. NBC News has reported that the Chicago Police Departments’ major accident unit is investigating the crash. If you have lost a loved one in an accident you may need to consider filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the party at fault. So, what is the difference between a wrongful death claim and a standard personal injury lawsuit? There’s a lot, and you most likely will want to consult with an experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer. Typical personal injury claims deal with auto accidents, slip and fall injuries, or even dog bites. While the victim has definitely suffered a physical injury, they have not lost their life. With a wrongful death claim, there may be a criminal element involved. Perhaps it’s due to a malpractice issue, or too often an accident involving a DUI. The point is that wrongful death lawsuits usually take time to settle and can be very complicated from a legal standpoint.
Our law firm, however, knows how to handle these types of complicated legal matters. We’ve not only won record-setting settlements and victories, such as a $55 million dollar train accident injury, we have also won well over $100,000,000.00. Our Chicago injury lawyers don’t just settle for bottom dollar. While we work to get out clients paid quickly we also believe in getting injury victims the maximum amount of compensation you deserve. Wrongful death lawsuits tend to drag out and can cause lots of additional emotional stress for families who have already suffered enough.
