Toledo OH Wrongful Death Lawyer
We take legal action on behalf of your loved one
The loss of a loved one can be emotionally devastating. And it can seem even more senseless when that person was killed because of the negligence of another. At Gervelis Law Firm, our Toledo wrongful death attorneys hold these negligent parties responsible and fight to get justice for your loved one.
A wrongful death can occur in Toledo as a result of many different types of accidents. You loved one may have been in a fatal crash caused by a drunk driver or lost their life due to medical malpractice, a defective product or a workplace accident. Any accident that was caused by negligence or reckless action and resulted in death may be grounds for a wrongful death suit.
We know how difficult the loss of a loved one can be for families, especially under these circumstances. We offer compassionate and dedicated representation to pursue a claim and help your family recover financial compensation. No amount of money can bring your loved one back. But it’s a way to hold negligent parties accountable and can help your family remain financially stable as you adjust to life without your loved one.
These cases are often very complicated, because there is a lot at stake. Negligent parties typically deny any responsibility for the death. Insurance companies will try to deny any responsibility for payments. Both will have lawyers working to protect their interests and trying to shift the blame away from them. They may even suggest your loved one was partially at fault.
A firm that doesn’t stop fighting for the best possible outcome
We don’t put up with those tactics. Our legal team investigates your loved one’s accident to determine what really happened. This includes reviewing all documentation, interviewing all witnesses and bringing in experts as needed. We work to build the strongest case possible, one that the insurance company has no choice but to take seriously.
Sometimes, an insurance company may make an initial settlement offer, hoping families will take it and go away. But it will be a lowball offer, an attempt at avoiding full responsibility. The damages we can seek on your behalf include prior medical expenses, funeral expenses, loss of income and loss of companionship.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, your family may have one to four years to take legal action. But we advise consulting a Toledo attorney as soon as you can. Building a strong case takes time, and it helps to preserve evidence before it is lost and talk to witnesses before their memories fade.
We want your focus to be on your family at this time, not on the complexities of a lawsuit. That’s why our firm takes on the work of getting justice for your loved one. Learn more about how we can help by calling 419-241-2351 for a free case evaluation. Or contact us online.
