Chicago Wrongful Death Lawyers

Wrongful death is not only the loss of a loved one, but it is also the loss of ongoing companionship, support and financial contribution to the family. In the horrific event of a family member’s untimely death, you are probably feeling shock, anger and grief all at the same time. While you may feel at a loss for how to handle your situation, you do not have to go through it alone.

At Hofeld and Schaffner, we have served families struggling with loss such as yours and helped them get financial compensation from the responsible party to cover burial expenses as well as other costs that your insurance company may not cover. You can call one of our wrongful death attorneys, who will respectfully listen to you and assess your situation for solutions that can work for you.

Get Appropriate Closure

Defending your right to compensation as a surviving family member of a wrongfully killed person is extremely difficult, but also necessary. Even though your loved one has passed, there are continuing financial obligations that need to be met and a wrongful death lawsuit may be the only solution at this time that can get you the funds that you need. At the Chicago firm of Hofeld and Schaffner, we handle the legal challenge so that you can focus on what you need to do to move through the grieving process.

Because of the negligence of someone else, your family is missing someone you used to count on. Compensation for wrongful death can cover:

  • Bills and medical expenses for the deceased
  • Funeral expenses for burying your loved one
  • Grief, loss of companionship and loss of consortium
  • Lost future earnings and inheritance

While money can never replace a deceased person, it can help their loved ones recover financially from their loss and provide a pathway forward. We are committed to holding the negligent party responsible for the fatal injury that took your loved one from you, and will aggressively pursue a wrongful death claim on your behalf so that you can focus on your family instead of your lawsuit. We have decades of experience in pursuing wrongful death claims for car accidents, untimely construction accidents and even more complex medical malpractice cases, so you can rely on us to help you.

Confidence For The Future

While compensation for wrongful death will not bring your loved one back, it can give you a sense of calm about making ends meet in the future. Hofeld and Schaffner‘s reputation for excellence in personal injury law means that your wrongful death case will be in good hands and zealously defended.
