Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Losing a family member as the result of another person’s recklessness or negligence can be emotionally and financially devastating to the family. Our trial lawyers understand this, and the many types of stresses that accompany these situations. We recognize that no legal settlement or other compensation will ever make up for such sudden tragedy.
Elman Joseph Law Group represents the surviving family members of victims who died in accidents caused by the careless or reckless actions of another party. If the family member who died was the primary wage earner, financial stresses due to loss of income will likely jeopardize the family’s ability to financially support itself. Our attorneys will protect your rights and allow you to receive the maximum possible wrongful death recovery. We achieve this either through pursuing a settlement, or, if such settlement offers are insufficient, by taking your Illinois wrongful death lawsuit to court. We are experienced court trial lawyers; Elman Joseph Law Group has established a reputation, based upon court verdicts achieved, as (highly) successful trial lawyers. Additionally, Tony Elman, Lead Trial Lawyer of the Elman Joseph Law Group, has been recognized for this extensive trial experience. This recognition is further discussed on the “Anthony Elman Receives ‘Most Reported Trials’ Recognition At Trial Lawyer Excellence Award Event” post.
