Chicago Accident Claims the Lives of Four

Posted on in Car Accidents

A recent Chicago car accident left multiple Cook County children without their mothers. As reported by CBS Chicago, four young women were killed in a tragic West Side car crash on the morning of Sunday, May 13, 2012. Ranging in age from 21 to 25-years-old, all four of those who died had children.

The Chicago police are still conducting their investigation into the wreck, but have stated that the vehicle the women were riding in was speeding when it hit a train track pole and then a light pole, with a great deal of force, causing it to split in two. Three of the young women in the accident died at the scene, while the fourth was pronounced dead at a Chicago hospital.

The family members of those who were killed spoke highly of the young women who perished in this car crash. Understandably, a main concern of many of those left behind is the well-being of these women’s children.

In some instances, the children of those who are killed in a car wreck are entitled to financial compensation from the faulty party. Losing a parent or family member in an accident is hard enough, and although finances may not be the first thing on your mind if you’re in this situation, it’s important to take the time to consult an experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer. Through the filing of a wrongful death lawsuit in Illinois state court, the family members of those who died could be entitled to compensation for funeral expenses, future lost wages and other monies that could potentially help the children who lost their parent in the wreck.
