Did You Lose A Loved One To A Fatal Auto Accident?
Did you lose a loved one to a car, truck or motorcycle accident that resulted from another driver’s negligence? Are you unsure of the path forward in the aftermath of the accident?

Since 1975, the attorneys at the law firm of Frederick & Hagle have helped countless families work through the aftermath of the fatal accidents by providing both legal guidance and emotional support. Our lawyers understand the pain our clients face following the wrongful deaths of their loved ones. We work diligently to secure the compensation they need to avoid the financial struggles that often follow.
Wrongful Death Compensation After Auto Accidents In Illinois
Before a court will award wrongful death compensation after a motor vehicle accident in Illinois, a victim’s family must present proof of negligence. Under Illinois law, driver negligence can be the result of any illegal or reckless behavior, such as:
- Drunk driving
- Inadequate vehicle maintenance
- Texting while driving
After some accidents, such as those caused by drunk drivers, it is fairly simple to prove negligence, as the breath or blood tests administered by law enforcement officials serve as evidence of reckless behavior. However, in some cases, it is much more difficult to prove negligence as a root cause of an accident. In those cases, family members often benefit from the assistance of experienced legal counsel.
