We understand that the sudden loss of a loved one is something no one can prepare for. We offer compassionate legal support as we aggressively seek to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions.
Since 1978, Donald A. Shapiro, Ltd. has helped hundreds of Chicago families who have lost a loved one in a fatal accident. Lawyer Don Shapiro understands the complexities of wrongful death cases and provides the individual attention you deserve during this difficult time. Over the years, we have been able to obtain record-breaking settlements for our clients as we fight to obtain maximum compensation for grieving families.
After a fatal accident, surviving family members not only face emotional hardships, but financial hardships. When a death is due to the negligence, recklessness or willful intent of another person, you may be entitled to compensation for things like:
- Funeral expenses
- Loss of income
- Loss of insurance
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
Depending on the unique circumstance of your case, you may also be able to seek punitive damages. Punitive damages go above and beyond compensatory damages; they are designed to serve as a punishment and set an example to others.
