Phil Lee – Wrongful Death Lawyer & Combat Veteran

As an army officer and combat veteran fighting for others has been my life work. While serving in Afghanistan I was wounded in a Taliban mortar strike.  There I learned firsthand just how difficult it is to recover from injury.

Illinois Wrongful Death Lawyers

When a loved one dies in an accident the consequences for the survivors can be both financially and emotionally devastating. Illinois has two ways for survivors to recover. One way is under the Illinois Wrongful Death Act, and the other is under the Probate Act, known as a Survival Action. There are tax and other important implications between a Wrongful Death recovery versus a Survival Action. Our attorneys literally teach other lawyers (HYPERLINK TO ARTICLE) how to handle these type of cases.

When a person dies in an accident the Illinois Survival Act allows the Estate of the deceased to maintain a suit for recovery. The Wrongful Death Act is different. It allows the survivors to recover for loss of support and emotional damages. Understanding the difference between these two Acts is an important factor that many lawyers don’t fully appreciate. If a death is instantaneous, for example, a Survival Action may fail. Creditors and medical care providers may have the right to assert claims against the recovery in some instances, but not in others.

The Fight With Phil Team deals with catastrophic death and injury cases on a daily basis. We understand the legal nuances which are important to maximize recovery for our clients, and how the right legal moves can protect the funds which the family and survivors need after a tragic death.

Please let us help you and your loved ones. We never charge for a consultation and we are always available to answer your questions, without charge and without any obligation. Team Phil is always there for you and your family!

“The truck driver had impaired vision and was suffering from extreme fatigue as we sat in traffic. Being injured and losing my mother was indescribable. Having Frank as our Lawyer made all the difference. He proved everything the trucking company said was a lie. He was professional in every way. I’m glad he was on our side.” – A.B.
