Determined Illinois advocate holds wrongful parties accountable

A representative of a deceased person's estate may have a valid basis for a wrongful death lawsuit if the death was a direct result of another person's or organization's negligent or intentional actions. Benjamin M. Sgro constructs strong wrongful death lawsuits for cases related to:

  • Auto accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Defective products
  • Lack of proper security
  • Mesothelioma
  • Medical malpractice
  • Birth injuries
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect

His thorough understanding of Illinois wrongful death laws enables him to skillfully handle your case from start to finish.

Hardworking attorney helps clients seek full compensation

Prompt action is critical to obtaining fair damages after the death of a family member. Mr. Sgro is well-versed in the courtroom tactics the opposition uses to attempt to limit their liability, and he counters their arguments with carefully planned responses designed to protect your rights. He works hard to demonstrate that you receive compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Funeral expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Loss of love, affection and companionship
  • Loss of protection and guidance
  • Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance

The damages given in a wrongful death lawsuit depend on the circumstances involved. To prove important factors such as the severity of the accident and the victim's suffering before passing, he may work with private investigators and experts to establish liability. He also obtains testimonials from witnesses, collect and preserve evidence, and take other strategic measures.

Benjamin M. Sgro aggressively seeks comprehensive settlements outside of court. If the other side fails to offer the remedy you deserve, however, he will be forceful advocates in litigation.
