Wrongful Death

Compassionate DuPage County Wrongful Death Lawyer

Filing a successful wrongful death claim takes more than just hiring a compassionate attorney who listens attentively to your needs. Your lawyer also needs to have an intense desire to fight for justice and fair compensation on your family’s behalf. Compassion that is not backed by an aggressive, intelligent case won’t help you recover the settlement or jury award your family needs.

Rice & Associates, Ltd., has been providing effective wrongful death representation since 1993. Attorney Patrick Rice has been involved in more than 100 jury trials and has helped many families receive significant compensation for their losses. When you hire us, we will listen intently to what your family’s loss means in terms of the financial loss and the emotional void it has caused. We will help you understand how Illinois wrongful death law applies to your case, and give you a clear understanding of how your decisions will affect your claim. Most importantly, you will know exactly what to expect throughout the legal process of your claim. We want you to know that you have somebody on your side, passionately—and compassionately--fighting for the justice your family needs.

We have helped families recover money for accidental death claims such as:

Time limitations to file

In Illinois, there is a statute of limitations of two years from the date of the death to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Minor-age children have until they are eighteen years old, plus two years to file a suit recovering damages for the loss of a parent. Rice & Associates, Ltd., can fully explain wrongful death statutes and how the law applies to your specific case.
