A wrongful death lawsuit may be filed to recover damages from those responsible for the death of an individual when the driver or operator of a truck, bus, train, or other vehicle caused an accident which resulted in the death, when the carelessness of individuals operating heavy equipment caused the death when the act or omission of others or of an organization results in an oil & gas industry related accidental death, when the mistake of a medical professional or other care provider results in death, and under many other circumstances where a death is caused by a person or organization acting negligently or, in rare cases, intentionally.

The purpose of a wrongful death lawsuit is to compensate family members for their financial and emotional losses. Certain family members of the deceased can recover for the pain and suffering of the deceased immediately after the accident, lost wages and other income, their own mental anguish resulting from the death, the medical expenses of the deceased, funeral and burial expenses, and the loss of the love, companionship, and support of the deceased individual.

The Greater Chicago Caucus has endorsed John Laesch, Democratic candidate for Congress in Illinois 14th district.

The Greater Chicago Caucus is committed to bringing together “like minded people of conscience who will work for the advancement and protection of human and civil rights, promote debate on public policy issues and work to support or elect officials that reflect the core values of this Caucus.”

The Greater Chicago Caucus has been interviewing and studying candidates since September. Candidates were evaluated on their positions on the issues of: civil liberties, comprehensive immigration reform, economic justice, environment, health care, education, middle east foreign policy and preemptive war.

John stated, “I am proud to be endorsed by an organization dedicated to peace and justice issues. I respect the diverse number of voices represented in the Caucus. I share their goal of leaving a better world to the next generations.”

Candidates who have the courage to stand up for true universal health care are few and far between, even as the number of health care tragedies in our country rises.

But John Laesch is no ordinary candidate, and health care is too critical an issue.

Last night in Elgin, Dr. Quentin Young, Illinois Sen. Mike Noland (D-22) and John Laesch spoke at an early evening forum hosted by the campaign.

Dr. Young, a tireless fighter for health care parity and justice, spoke of his history as a universal health care advocate, and the importance of our election.

John offered a detailed power point presentation exploring some of the questions concerning single payer health care and explaining some of the finer points.

Sen. Noland brought the crowd up to speed on developments in Springfield, and true to his grass roots, spoke of the challenges candidates face when opposed by big money.

The crowd consisted of many health care professionals, leading to an informative conversation with many differing perspectives. Quite a few of the people attending offered their own stories and problems with our current system, and all justify with a greater understanding and appreciation of a single payer health care solution.
