The unexpected loss of a loved one is a tragic event. When that loss is due to a wrongful act or negligence, it is an injustice. The law cannot bring your loved one back, but it will provide you with justice against the person who caused the death, and it may help you with the devastating changes to your life and the financial consequences of your loss.
I will help you through this most difficult time by fighting to ensure the responsible party is held accountable. My goal is to protect the interests of clients who have lost a spouse, parent or child due to the wrongful act of another person or entity.
Ohio has a specific section of the Ohio Revised Code that sets out the law concerning a wrongful death case, including who may make such a claim and the elements of recovery. Some types of compensation that can be recovered include loss of support, services, lost prospect of inheritance, medical and funeral expenses, and loss of financial support.
There are strict time limits in place and a probate estate must be opened to pursue a case.
