What are you entitled to? We Fight for Your Full and Fair Compensation
Ohio’s wrongful death laws provide options for deceased victims’ families to pursue financial compensation. This coverage may be available after a car wreck, slip and fall accident, work accident, or other situation involving negligence or criminal behavior.
Compensation may be available to address costs relating to:
- funeral and burial costs;
- loss of household income (based on the expected lifetime earning capacity of the deceased victim);
- loss of those qualities inherent in a close relationship (companionship, consortium, care, protection, advice, guidance, instruction and so on);
- loss of “prospective inheritance”; and
- your mental anguish and suffering (as well as the suffering of other survivors as outlined by the law’s definition of “next of kin”).
There are many factors at play in calculating the value of a wrongful death claim. A wrongful death lawyer like David Bressman can offer an educated estimation of the value of your claim based on the facts of your case, such as the negligent party/parties involved and the impact of the loss on surviving family members.
Find Out if You Are Eligible for a Wrongful Death Action
Wrongful death actions are appropriate in situations in which a victim dies as the result of someone else’s negligence. The negligent party may be another driver (in the case of a car accident), a manufacturer (in the case of product liability) or an accident on someone else’s property. These are just a few examples of potential defendants in a wrongful death action.
Ohio’s laws dictate only specified parties may benefit from a wrongful death action. These parties include:
- children; and
- other surviving beneficiaries or dependents.
Wrongful death lawyer David Bressman can answer your questions about your potential legal action. This includes helping you determine if there are sufficient grounds for a claim or lawsuit, whether you are eligible to file and all liable parties.
