Causes of Wrongful Death

A number of events can result in personal injury or wrongful death. Reckless drivers can cause motor vehicle accidents in which other drivers and passengers are severely injured or killed. Further, victims of medical malpractice sustain life-threatening injuries due to the negligence of doctors, pharmacists, and other health care professionals. Drug corporations, car manufacturers, and other companies can be held liable if they produce, distribute, or market defective products that result in illness, serious injury, or death. Also, employers are responsible for the safety of their employees, especially on construction work sites. If a workplace accident, auto accident, negligent medical treatment, or other incident results in death, the family members of the victim may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim and be compensated for their loss.

The Will County trial lawyers from Hamilton & Antonsen, Ltd. are committed to protecting the rights of families who have lost a loved one.
