What Does Wrongful Death Mean?

At MacCloskey Kesler and Associates, we see our roles as more than just attorneys. Our team is stocked with personal injury lawyers with decades of experience, certainly, but we also see ourselves as an advocate, guide, and even a friend to each of our clients. We are committed to providing personal attention to those we serve, and part of that is putting complex legal terms into easier-to-understand wording. When we take the time to do this with our clients, they are more informed and empowered.

We serve clients with various needs, some who come to us devastated at the loss of someone they love. These cases can be especially emotional for us, and we work diligently to give the surviving family members the compensation they deserve in a timely manner.

What does ‘wrongful death’ mean?

The term “wrongful death” can mean different things in different states. Here in Illinois, wrongful death means the death of a person was caused by a wrongful act. This wrongful act can be separated into three categories: acts that were intentional, that were neglectful, or that demonstrated other acts of misconduct.

How do we handle wrongful death cases?

Wrongful death cases require our team to lean on our personal and professional experience. We aim to make the surviving family members, our clients, feel empowered during this emotional and trying time. Our attorney team will sit down with the family to learn more about the death and the conditions leading up to the event. Then, we will work to secure paperwork and documentation about the death and the events that happened prior to, and immediately after, the event.

Our team will advocate for your best interests and an outcome you deserve. We are well versed in the courtroom and are not afraid to take insurance companies and the other party to court to get what you deserve.

All through the process, we are committed to standing beside you and your family as you navigate this difficult time. We will get through this together.

If you have lost a loved one to suspicious conditions, or if you have been injured, contact our team. We would love to hear your story and give you our full attention. Call us today.
