A wrongful death attorney is needed when a loved one or family member dies as a result of the carelessness or negligence of others. Our firm handles such cases with the care and empathy they deserve to ensure that the process will be free from unneeded additional stress or hardship.  When an unexpected loss occurs, not only do you suffer emotional trauma, but your very way of life is turned upside down. Our firm will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive justice and fair financial compensation, even though no amount of monetary compensation will ever come close to fully addressing this critical, life changing loss.

In Ohio, wrongful death claims must be brought on behalf of the surviving family members by the executor of the will of the deceased or another representative appointed by the court.  You also need to be aware that every state has certain time limits called “statutes of limitations,” which restrict the length of time you have to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If you miss the deadline for filing your case, your claim may be dismissed by the court.  Wrongful death damages seek to compensate the family for medical bills, burial expenses, lost wages and loss of companionship, as well as other damages.
