The statute of limitations for Wrongful Death in Illinois is 2 years. 740 ILCS 180/2.

Children are able to sue 2 years after reaching the age of majority.

If an action is against a defendant which action arises from a crime committed by the defendant in whose name an escrow account was established under the "Criminal Victims Escrow Account Act" 725 ILCS 145/1 et seq., the action must be commenced within 2 years after the establishment of such an account.
