Determined Illinois Attorney Handles Wrongful Death Cases

Established law firm represents families in the Naperville area who’ve lost a loved one

The unexpected loss of a family member is even more tragic when their death is caused by someone else’s reckless or deliberately malicious behavior. At Law Offices of Steven E. Stern, LLC, I work to help survivors in Illinois cope with their new circumstances. In settlement negotiations and at trial, I advocate for my clients to receive compensation that allows them to settle their loved one’s affairs and find a measure of justice for their wrongful death.

Respected Illinois lawyer pursues justice for victims of negligence or violence

A representative of a deceased person’s estate may have a valid basis for a wrongful death lawsuit if the death was a direct result of another person’s or organization’s negligent or intentional actions. My law firm may represent you and your family if you lost a loved one due to any of the following causes:

  • Auto accident
  • Truck accident
  • Slip and fall
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Motorcycle accident
  • Defective product
  • Lack of proper security
  • Mesothelioma
  • Medical malpractice
  • Birth injury
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Aviation accident
  • Assault
  • Murder

My thorough understanding of Illinois wrongful death laws enables me to skillfully handle all legal aspects of your case and to seek the remedy you deserve. Those laws set a time limit to pursue a wrongful death claim, so it is essential you seek the legal help you need as early as possible.

Caring counselor seeks compensation for grieving families

I understand the profound impacts of the loss of a loved one, which is why I devote substantial resources to every wrongful death case I take. The damages awarded in a wrongful death lawsuit depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of the accident and the individual’s suffering prior to passing. I will strive to help clients receive compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance

I employ private investigators and work with expert witnesses to ensure that your case is as strong as possible. I may also collect and preserve evidence from the accident scene and obtain testimony from people with first-person knowledge of your loved one’s passing. I will explore all options before focusing in on a tailored legal strategy to help you receive the maximum compensation possible.
