What is Wrongful Death?

Both wrongful death and personal injury arise when the negligent, or intentional actions of another cause someone to experience harm. Aside from this common trait, these two claims are very different from one another. Under Illinois Law, wrongful death is listed as the death of a human being as the result of a wrongful act, neglect, or default of another person. Many different circumstances can classify a situation as a wrongful death. Wrongful death can be brought against a person who is also facing criminal charges in the same event, and even if they are not found guilty of the crime, that person can still be found liable for the wrongful death action.
