Helping Families Who Lost Loved Ones
The loss of a loved one is never easy for a family to endure. However, when a loss is the result of the careless actions of a medical professional, who vowed to do no harm, it becomes much more difficult to accept.
At the law firm of Frederick & Hagle, we have helped the families of victims of medical malpractice in Central Illinois since our firm’s founding in 1975, and we can help you as well.
Your Rights After A Loss Due To Medical Malpractice
In Illinois, surviving family members of medical malpractice victims have the right to pursue wrongful death compensation by filing lawsuits against the negligent doctors, nurses or medical facilities, including nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.
In cases in which the courts recognize the presented proof of medical malpractice, immediate family members — usually the victims’ spouses, children or parents — can receive compensation for:
- Economic damages (i.e., the lost wages that loved one contributed to the family’s income)
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship
- Possible punitive damages
If you live in Urbana or the surrounding area and you have lost a loved one due to a negligent doctor, nurse or a medical facility’s substandard care, the attorneys at the law firm of Frederick & Hagle can examine the details surrounding your loved one’s death and determine whether you are eligible to file for wrongful death compensation.
