Wrongful Death Lawsuits in Medical Malpractice

Unfortunately, Kim MacCloskey knows this scenario all too well. When he and his father were seriously injured by a gas explosion at his home, his mother passed away due to her injuries. This wrongful death and tragedy was a formative moment in Kim’s life. He has spent his career advocating for people just like him – people who have been injured or who are living without someone they love due to an awful situation.

Wrongful death cases are tragic and sad. Many attorneys resist wrongful death cases simply because of the emotions attached to them. The team at MacCloskey Kesler and Associates does not resist these cases; we are passionate about taking on these types of cases and giving our clients the compassion and understanding they deserve while navigating this difficult time.  We know the Illinois Wrongful Death Act and how to prove conscious pain and suffering under the Illinois Survival Act.  We know what it is like and what to do about it.

A wrongful death involves a death caused by the wrongful act of another. This can be due to a car accident, an unreasonably dangerous product, the negligence of a medical professional or any other type of injury that results in death. Family members arrive in our office devastated, overwhelmed, and even angry. We know that we can never make up for losing a loved one, but we can advocate for fair compensation that can give surviving family members assistance for economic and emotional losses.

If you have lost someone due to neglect or a wrongful act, you can count on us to be a part of your support team. We have the passion and experience to take opposing lawyers or insurance companies to task on your behalf. We have the experience to give you the compensation you deserve.

Call our office to schedule your free consultation and tell us more about your situation. We will honor your loss and guide you through these next steps.
