Negligence-Based Causes of Wrongful Death in Worthington
When our law firm handles your case, we start by investigating and understanding the cause of your loved one’s demise.
Some causes of wrongful death can in
- Birth injuries
- Car accidents
- Dog bites or attacks
- Medical malpractice
- Slip and fall accidents
Our legal team will conduct an independent investigation into your case to prove the cause of your family’s loss. We will also identify the negligent party and the relevant insurance company.
Compensation We Recover for Your Family
No amount of compensation can make up for the loss of someone you love. If you are the decedent’s parent, spouse, or child, though, our law firm will help you recover compensation that helps you cope with the loss of their support.
We work hard to recover the following damages for your family:
- Loss of your loved one’s financial contributions
- Loss of your loved one’s domestic contributions
- Your loved one’s funeral and burial expenses
- Your mental and emotional pain and suffering
- Your loss of companionship and consortium
To prove the cause of your loved one’s demise and your right to recover damages, we identify the negligent party and prove their duty, breach, causation, and damages. We also make sure you understand each of these legal terms and the role they play in your case.
Our Law Firm Can Handle Your Case From Start to Finish
Proving the cause of your loved one’s demise and preparing an insurance claim or lawsuit are complex and time-consuming activities. In Worthington or any of the nearby communities, the time you have to do so is limited by state law.
In Ohio, the wrongful death statute of limitations is generally two years from the date your loved one passed away, according to Ohio Revised Code Section 2125.02. When we represent you, we make sure to file your lawsuit on time. While your lawsuit is more likely to be resolved with a settlement than a trial, we make sure you do not run out of time to seek compensation in the way that best fits your case.
