- Neglected under medical supervision
- Attacked by a neighbor’s animal
- Abused or neglected in a nursing home
- Fell from scaffolding at work
- Shot or beaten by a law enforcement officer
- Drowned in an unguarded swimming pool
- Hurt by a dangerous product
No matter the type of fatal accident, reaching out to our legal team as soon as possible following your loved one’s death can help you clarify your next steps. Under Illinois law, survivors generally have up to two years from the date of their loved one’s death caused by another’s wrongful act or neglect to file a wrongful death lawsuit. They would have five years if their loved one’s death were due to intentionally violent conduct. Exceptions may apply.
