Seeking Justice for Families of Fatal Accident Victims in Arlington Heights and Rolling Meadows

The sudden death of a family member or loved one is tragic and overwhelming. When the death is the result of negligent action or inaction of another party, it can be absolutely devastating. If you have lost someone you love in any type of accident, you may be uncertain and confused about the future. The compassionate team at Newland & Newland, LLP can help you analyze your situation and determine whether a wrongful death claim is appropriate to help you and your family as you move forward.

Wrongful Death Attorneys Serving Northern Illinois

Our experienced wrongful death attorneys understand that money is not enough to ease the pain of losing your loved one. It is impossible to translate the value of a person's life to a dollar amount. However, we also realize that financial compensation through a wrongful death action could help you and your loved ones with:

  • Medical bills incurred prior to the victim's death;
  • Funeral and burial or cremation costs;
  • Lost future income of the victim;
  • Loss of work benefits;
  • Loss of inheritance; and
  • Loss of support and services the victim provided to the family.

In certain cases, punitive damages may be appropriate to help ensure other families will not suffer similar tragedies.

Protecting Surviving Family Members in Palatine and Schaumburg

Almost any kind of accident situation can lead to a wrongful death, including auto accidents, bus accidents, train accidents, workplace accidents, and many others. Under Illinois law, the victim's surviving family members may be entitled to collect damages by filing a formal wrongful death claim. In most cases, this means that the decedent's spouse and children can collect compensation, with the victim's parents being eligible in certain situations as well. Illinois law allows the surviving immediate family members of the victim to collect compensation in a wrongful death claim. The wrongful death claim must usually be filed by a special administrator of the decedent's estate.

At Newland & Newland, LLP, we know that the process of obtaining compensation for your loved one's death can be challenging, but we are prepared to help. We work closely with a vast network of fully qualified experts, including engineers and scientists who can assist us in determining fault and negligence.
