Fatal Car Accidents in Cook County

If you lost a loved one in a car accident in Illinois, you are undoubtedly searching for answers. The loss of a loved one is always emotional, and it is even harder to cope when the death was unexpected and caused by the negligence or recklessness of someone else. At a time like this, an experienced lawyer can provide you the guidance and advice you need.

At the law firm of Steinberg, Burtker & Grossman, we represent families who are grieving. We provide compassionate friendly service to each client. Because we have served the Chicago area for more than 40 years, we have good relationships with psychologists, counselors and other mental health professionals to whom we can refer clients who need more specialized emotional support than we can provide. We know that there is no possible amount of compensation that can make up for the loss of a loved one, but we do believe that a successful wrongful death claim does two things for our clients:

  • Provides a source of compensation so that a family can continue making ends meet in the aftermath of an unexpected death
  • Provides some sense that justice has been served and that the negligent driver was held accountable
