The Importance of Investigation in Wrongful Death Cases
Investigation can prove critical in all accident cases. In Illinois wrongful death cases, however, it is often an absolute necessity because of the Dead Man’s Act. This law states that if one person survives an accident in which another person dies, the survivor may not be allowed to testify about how the accident happened. In other words, we may not have a crucial witness statement. That is why it is so important to gather evidence and work with experts, such as accident reconstructionists, to make sure we have all the facts.
