Ohio Wrongful Death Attorneys
If a member of your family suffered a fatal injury in a motor vehicle accident, a workplace accident, or from medical negligence, we extend our sympathy. Unfortunately, during this time of emotional and financial upheaval, you will soon be called by an insurance company and asked to decide whether to accept a settlement. It is likely you won’t even know the full extent of your losses at the time of that call.
It is extremely important to consult an attorney before making a decision. You will have only one chance for financial recovery, so it is essential not to accept less than you are due.
What Is the Cost of a Wrongful Death to a Family?
No insurance settlement or jury verdict can end the grief a family suffers after the loss of a parent, a child, or a spouse. What a wrongful death lawsuit can do is provide financial support to help you rebuild your life:
- It can pay any medical bills that occurred at the time of death, as well as funeral expenses.
- It can pay to replace a totaled vehicle after a car accident or property damage after a home fire caused by a defective product, for example.
- It can replace lost income, including the loss of future income.
- It can allow you to pay for needed services, such as child care, that your loved one once provided.
Through a wrongful death lawsuit or insurance negotiations, our lawyers will aggressively pursue full and fair compensation for all of your losses, so you can rebuild your life. We often work with accident reconstruction experts to establish liability for the accident. We may work with economists to understand the lifetime financial cost of your family’s loss.
