Get Help Now


I wasn’t ready to file a wrongful death case after my husband died in a truck accident about 18 months ago. Is it too late now?

You may have just enough time left to file a wrongful death case before the Illinois statute of limitations bars you from filing a case. Generally, Illinois law requires that a wrongful case be filed within two years. If the case is not filed in that time then the courts may refuse to hear the case and you may forfeit your potential claim.

It is understandable that you weren’t ready to file a wrongful death case immediately following your husband’s tragic death in a truck wreck on Route 9, Interstate 39, or another Illinois road. The overwhelming grief and the significant change in your family may have pushed any potential legal action to the back burner.

Yet, Now Your Time Is Limited

Now is the time to take action. That action does not mean that you are going to file a case today. Instead, it means that you are going to take the necessary actions to make an informed decision so that you do not forego your potential claim because you wait too long. It means that today is the day that you are going to learn more about your legal rights and schedule a free consultation with a lawyer.

Remember, if you wait much longer then you may never receive compensation for your loved one’s funeral costs, for the medical bills he incurred before death, or for the income that your family has lost. You may never be able to hold the trucker or trucking company responsible for their negligent actions that took the life of your loved one.

Don’t let inaction prevent your fair recovery. Instead, please start an online chat with us right now to get all of your individual questions answered and to protect your possible recovery.
