Unexpected accidents are the leading cause of death of people between the ages of 18 and 55. Our legal system has recognized that problem and maintained a method by which the rights of the deceased may be protected.
A death caused by the negligence of another is called a “wrongful death.” In most states, surviving family members have the right to financial compensation for the wrongful death of a relative. At the Dinizulu Law Group, Ltd., we strive to obtain the highest possible compensation for those who have lost a loved one.
The amount of the settlement or verdict depends upon a variety of factors. The prior income of the deceased person and the surviving family members dependent upon that income play a major role. In addition, the loss of companionship, love, and affection to the spouse and children of the deceased is considered.
Call the Dinizulu Law Group, Ltd. if a friend or family member has become a victim of wrongful death. The initial consultation is free. If we agree to handle your case, we will work on a contingency fee basis. That means we get paid for our services only if we recover money for you.
Statutes of limitation provide a cut-off date by which these types of lawsuits must be filed. You may waive your right to prosecute a matter on behalf of a deceased loved one if your lawsuit is not filed in a timely manner. Call right away to ensure that you do not waive your right to compensation. Call the lawyers at the Dinizulu Law Group, Ltd. at (312) 384-1920 to advocate on your behalf.
