Q: How long do wrongful death lawsuits usually take?
A: Depends entirely on the cirucmstances. If the deceased was at fault it may be a long time. Product liability, other cases can take a long time.
Charles Candiano agrees with this answer
A: As my colleague answered, there are too many variables to give a meaningful answer without more details. If you are pursuing a wrongful death claim in Illinois, it is foolish to do so without an experienced attorney. Consults are free. If you are represented by counsel, make an appointment to sit down with him and make sure you understand the process, including a potential UIM claim, distribution, and probate estate.
