Wrongful Death:  Chicago Personal Injury Attorney

A wrongful death case is filed when the wrongful or negligent conduct of a person or corporation causes the death of another person. In contrast to a personal injury case where the injured person is the named plaintiff, a wrongful death lawsuit is brought by a personal representative on behalf of the estate of the deceased person against the persons or entities responsible for the victim’s death. Monetary damages awarded in a wrongful death case are generally designed to compensate the family members of the deceased individual for their loss.

Mr. Saletta has a long history of successfully representing families who have suffered the profound loss of a family member due to the wrongful conduct of another. Results that he has obtained for these families include a $5.5 million dollar verdict for the death of a young mother and a $1.15 million dollar settlement for the death of a child. For a listing of some of his other results in wrongful death cases, see History of Successes.
