What is a wrongful death accident?
You may have grounds for a wrongful death claim if the loss of your loved one is caused by an act of negligence, such as drunk driving. While wrongful death lawsuits often are linked to car and truck accidents, medical malpractice is one of the leading causes of such claims. But any death that results from carelessness or recklessness may lead to wrongful death litigation. Whether your loved one died on the road, in a hospital or at work, you should speak to an attorney to know your rights. We will treat you with the dignity and respect your deserve.
Cases involving the loss of life are among the most complicated we handle. With so much at stake, insurance companies for negligent parties typically enlist high-paid attorneys to defend their interests. They often try to shift blame to the deceased. As experienced attorneys for families who have lost loved ones, we are prepared to handle the most complex wrongful death cases.
How can an Ohio wrongful death attorney help me?

Remember, your family only has a limited amount of time to take legal action in Ohio. The statute of limitation (the deadline) for taking legal action after the death of a loved one is often one to four years, depending on circumstances surrounding your case. That might seem like a long time. But building a strong wrongful death case often takes a tremendous amount of time and patience. Don't leave your future to chance.
