You Must Take Action Now
It is imperative that you act quickly and seek legal representation soon after your loved one’s death. (735 ILCS 5/13-209) generally allows one year to file a civil lawsuit for the death of your loved one.
A year can pass quickly as you adjust to life without your loved one. If you miss the deadline for filing your case, you may be barred from pursuing compensation forever.
This is especially concerning because you may not experience the true impact of your loss for years to come. Planning for and pursuing possible compensation now is imperative and an opportunity you must not miss.
Speaking with a wrongful death lawyer as soon as possible is an important first step toward securing justice for your loved one. We can help you in your time of mourning.
