Personal Injury Law is Our Expertise

In Ohio, wrongful death claims must be brought on behalf of the surviving family members by the executor or executrix of the will of the deceased or another representative appointed by the court. You also need to be aware that every state has certain time limits called “statutes of limitations,” which restrict the length of time you have to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If the deadline for filing the suit is missed your claim will be dismissed by the court. Wrongful death damages seek to compensate the family for medical bills, burial expenses, lost wages and loss of companionship, as well as other damages.

Our Firm has Significant Experience and Resources

Our law firm is equipped with years of experience representing victims of wrongful death accidents. We will extend a significant outlay of human and financial resources and time gathering all pertinent information to understand, bolster and support your wrongful death case. Our network of highly qualified expert witnesses and medical specialists will provide us with strong evidence to document and prove all of the pertinent facts of your case and our theory of liability.

We are passionate about your significant loss and will vigorously pursue all avenues of compensation possible. We will guide you through the legal process, notify you of all your rights and entitlements, and help you obtain the justice you deserve. If the insurance company of the party at fault refuses to act reasonably and responsibly and offer full compensation under the law, we will be fully prepared to litigate your case in court.
