One of the worst things in life is to lose a loved one in a tragic accident.  At the time, it may seem insurmountable, and dealing with the daily demands can seem overwhelming.  Unfortunately, many victims’ families do not pursue legal avenues because they cannot comprehend adding another layer of pain to the equation. Other times, it may seem as though pursuing legal recourse is unrealistic or intimidating. Fatal accidents are devastating to the family of the victim and could cause a lifetime of emotional trauma and financial ruin.

This is why a loved one needs to contact a wrongful death lawyer to help them understand what they need to do after such a devastating loss.  As your attorney, I will take the time to answer as many questions as you have. For example:

What is a Wrongful Death Claim?

A  claim for wrongful death can occur when an individual dies due to the negligence of another individual. I have handled wrongful death claims resulting from medical malpractice, product liabilities, work accidents, car accidents and more.

The burden of proof falls on the victims’ family; I play a vital role in discovering and documenting the circumstances that lead up to the fatal incident.

Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?

The person who can file a wrongful death claim varies from state to state. Usually the person is an immediate family member, life partner, or distant family member. It is important to remember that in Ohio, the statute of limitations is 2 years from the death unless there are extenuating circumstances.

Who Can be Sued in a Wrongful Death Suit?

  • The negligent driver in a car accident.
  • Tavern owners who serve alcohol.
  • Manufacturers of faulty products.
  • Doctors, hospitals and other health care workers.
  • Nursing homes due to abuse resulting in death.
  • Truck drivers and trucking companies.

The most important thing to remember when you file a wrongful death claim is that it may be a lengthy and emotional process.  As your injury lawyer, I will be at your side during every step of this process.

As your wrongful death lawyer,  I’ll be there for you, and I’ll Make Them Pay!®
