Illinois injury lawyerIt is hard to imagine anything more distressful and heartbreaking than the sudden death of a loved one due to an accident or some kind of negligence. Pursuing a wrongful death suit often helps family members find some type of closure while requiring parties at fault to correct flaws in systems, procedures, manufacturing or other processes.

It Should Never Have Happened

When deaths occur due to accidents or some type of negligence, what everyone needs to realize is that these occurrences are not confined simply to the home or place of work. While wrongful deaths occur in these locations, recent news illustrates that tragedy can strike when one least expects it.

A wrongful death settlement reached recently involved the family of a Missouri teenager and a number of parties involved in the manufacturing and sales and distribution of a basketball goal, as well as an architect and contractor involved in the renovation of the gymnasium at a local elementary school.

In another high-profile case, the girlfriend of a man shot and killed by police in Minnesota agreed to a settlement with the two police departments involved in the incident.

Common to both incidents summarized above is the feeling that, while they know it doesn’t change what happened, the pursuit of a wrongful death suit allows for some level of justice for the deceased and hope that steps will be taken to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future.
