Second, the heirs may also seek compensation for loss of companionship, moral guidance, financial support, and other losses. In addition, under Illinois’ revised wrongful death statute, the surviving spouse and next of kin may recover for grief, sorrow, and mental suffering.

Client Reviews
Thorough, articulate, and extremely knowledgeable of the law. Jason is someone I would highly recommend to family and friends. He represented me in an automobile case and was very happy with the overall experience and outcome! Joni S.
Jason handled a very challenging auto accident case for me. My injuries were all based on preexisting conditions that were made worse by the accident. He did an amazing job proving up my case, which included destroying the defense expert at deposition. In the end, I received an excellent settlement on a tough case. Jason is a very smart, talented, and diligent lawyer who I would highly recommend to anyone. Phil S.
