According to Ohio Revised Statutes section 2125, wrongful death is defined as a death that is “wrongful act, neglect, or default” and has been caused by another person. However, simply knowing what the definition of what wrongful death is does not bring your loved one back to you. As someone who has also experienced the very same tragedy myself – when my grandfather suddenly and unexpectedly died in a scaffolding accident when he was working as a bricklayer during the construction of Tower City Center in Cleveland, Ohio – I am intimately familiar with how devastating a wrongful death can be.

A wrongful death can tear families apart, breaking the hearts of surviving spouses, children, parents, and everyone else who loved the victim. Fortunately, the Ohio wrongful death law provides compensation for those who have suffered a wrongful death in their lives. If you are a surviving:

  • Spouse
  • Parent
  • Child
  • Brother
  • Sister
  • Cousin

Then you can make a wrongful death claim to get restitution for the loss of your loved one. While wrongful death claims do not get you any compensation for the damages suffered by the victim, it can help you get back on your feet and give you restitution for not only your pain and suffering, but any economical hardship that you may endure from the loss of your beloved family member or partner.

When I take your case, I have two clearly defined goals in mind. First, I want to make sure you get every single penny you deserve for your pain and your loss of income. Secondly, I want to fight to make sure any policies that were in place that led to your pain are changed so nobody else has to hurt like you are hurting now. When I represent you, I need to prove four things:

  1. Negligence led to the loss of your loved one.
  2. Had they survived, they would have been owed compensation for his or her injuries.
  3. You (the surviving family member) exist.
  4. You are owed compensation for your loss because you have suffered damage due to the wrongful death.
