Fatal Car Accidents in Illinois

Fatal car accidents in the state of Illinois take the lives of hundreds of people annually. Unfortunately, the majority of accidents that take place are due to negligent and reckless parties. Countless preventable accidents occur on our roadways as a result of drivers who are impaired, distracted, or engaging in other reckless actions.

When victims lose their lives in accidents, their families are often forced to endure overwhelming mental, emotional, and financial consequences. Numerous incidents are caused by reckless and negligent drivers who leave innocent victims and their families to deal with the devastating aftermath. In some cases, surviving relatives of victims can reach out to a wrongful death attorney in University Park to get the justice they deserve. Surviving relatives may be entitled to compensation to cover the financial burdens they face moving forward.

  • "Excellent Law Firm!"

    I cannot recommend D&W Law Group enough. From the moment I met the team, I felt confident that I was in good hands. They kept in touch with me every step of the way. My attorneys fought the insurance company, and we settled my case without having to go to court. Excellent law firm!

  • "Great Settlement"

    When I had my accident, the insurance company dragged its feet. I tried to handle the case on my own. I am so glad I decided to hire D&W Law Group. They kept my case moving, and I was awarded a great settlement. I hope I never need an attorney again, but if I do I will call them.
