The Attorneys at Steigmann Law, PC are well versed in handling wrongful death cases and representing the families of victims involved in wrongful death cases throughout Central Illinois. We are with you every step of the way, from handling insurance companies, negotiating medical bills and liens, maximizing the valuation of your damages, and pursuing arbitration and litigation.
Wrongful Death Cases
The financial burdens of the loss of your loved one can be overwhelming. These costs should be covered by the person or entity responsible for your loved one’s death. The responsible party should be held accountable for their negligence. Immediate family members and dependents of anyone killed in an accident have the right to file a wrongful death claim within two years of their death.
We Can Help Hold Negligent Parties Accountable for Your Loss
When you lose a loved one, the financial losses go far beyond the medical and funeral costs. When preparing your claim and, if necessary, fighting for your family at trial, we will work with experts to determine the lost earning potential and income.
We have also obtained compensation for pain and suffering experienced by the deceased prior to death, as well as non-economic losses, such as loss of companionship, loss of services, and loss of consortium.
