Who Can File A Wrongful Death Lawsuit In Illinois?
According to the Illinois Wrongful Death Act (Statute 740 ILCS 180/2), a personal representative of the deceased such as a spouse, child, parent, grandparent or sibling may file a wrongful death claim on behalf of a deceased loved one. A child of the deceased may only bring a claim if there is no surviving spouse. Likewise, a parent of the deceased may only file a claim if there is no surviving spouse or child. In cases where there is no surviving spouse, child or parent, a representative of the deceased’s estate may file a wrongful death claim, recoverable by the deceased’s next of kin.
If you are a beneficiary, you should act quickly to preserve evidence and adhere to the statute of limitations (or filing deadline) for any legal action you wish to bring forward.
