Understanding wrongful death claims

A wrongful death case can arise in various ways, but they all revolve around someone losing their life due to the careless, negligent, or intentional actions of another individual, business, or entity. Under Ohio law, the following people can bring a wrongful death claim:

  • Spouse
  • Children, including adopted children
  • Surviving parents

Ohio law also specifies that there is a two-year statute of limitations in place for those people to file a wrongful death claim. There are certain cases where this time frame can be extended to 10 years after the date of death, particularly if the death happened due to a dangerous or defective product.

Due to these tight time frames, you should speak to an attorney as soon as possible to get your case started. These cases usually involve extensive investigation, and your attorney will work to gather all evidence needed in the case, including eyewitness accounts, accident reports, available surveillance, medical records, and more.
