Who Can File a Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Illinois?
When a family member dies under negligent circumstances, their "survivors" are entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit. This may include their husband or wife, children, parents, or siblings. However, certain relatives have priority over others. Illinois law also requires a personal representative of the deceased's estate to bring the wrongful death action on behalf of surviving family members.

In Illinois, all wrongful death actions are subject to a two-year statute of limitations. This means that you will only have two years from the date of your loved one's death to file your case. If you fail to do so before the statute of limitations expires, you may lose your chance to seek compensation. For this reason, we encourage you to get in touch with Morici, Figlioli & Associates as soon as possible.
