Wrongful Death Lawyer
Serious Representation for Survivors: (312) 620-1261
In the state of Illinois, as in all states, there is what is known as the
wrongful death act. What this law means is that after someone has died
as a result of another's act, a personal representative of the deceased
can seek to recover financial compensation for the benefit of the surviving
family. At the law firm of Boudreau & Nisivaco, LLC, we have been
representing families in these types of lawsuits for the past 30 years
and have recovered
millions of dollars in damages for our clients.

Who can file a wrongful death claim in Illinois?
Many people shy away from talk of lawsuits when their loved one has passed,
but as time goes on, the loss of that person's society, income, and
guidance is felt more and more. The reason we urge you to talk to a wrongful
death attorney in the Chicagoland area is that there are time limits in
which you can legally bring an action for wrongful death.
In the state of Illinois, this legal right extends to:
- The surviving spouse
- Next of kin, both lineal and collateral
- The parents of a deceased minor child
- Adult children of the deceased
The law attempts to put a dollar value on the grief, sorrow, and mental
suffering of the survivors. Unfortunately, financial compensation is the
only measure of compensation that the law can provide. It is a small consolation
when losing a loved one, but it is all our system can provide. If you
wait and forego the opportunity to be compensated for your loss or your
children's' loss, you may regret your decision someday.
