WHAT IS WRONGFUL DEATH?
A wrongful death occurs when someone is killed due to the fault of another person or entity. A wrongful death cause of action is possible in virtually all other personal injury causes of action including car/trucking accidents, medical malpractice, product liability, dog bite and construction accidents.
The Illinois Wrongful Death Act allows survivors to sue for their own monetary losses. The survivors and people who may bring a lawsuit include the victim’s spouse, children and parents.
The Illinois Survival Act allows a victim's estate to recover for economic and non-economic damages the victim suffered between the time of injury and death.
In Illinois, these are two separate and distinct claims. However, they are often brought within the same wrongful death lawsuit.
