In Illinois, can we sue the makers of a tanning lotion if we know it caused our daughters death? 5 Answers as of January 28, 2011

Is there anything that we can do in court about this loss? Our 18-year-old daughter died after using Tingle tanning lotion with her friends this past summer. The two girls that tanned with her were ill as well after tanning. My daughter went home to wash off the lotion, passed out in the tub and drowned.

I am sorry for your loss. It must be terrible to lose a child. Yes you can sue. You must prove that the tanning lotion caused her to pass out. Were any toxicology test done? Besides the fact that her friends also got sick, is there any other reason you suspect the lotion. I will be happy to discuss it further.
