If you lost a family member and believe it was the result of a wrongful death, you should seek the legal advice of a Dublin, Ohio wrongful death lawyer right away. The loss of a loved one is difficult for anyone to handle, but that loss can become more difficult when a loved one is taken away unexpectedly as the result of another person’s negligent act. Wrongful death is the term associated with the taking of an individual’s life as the result of the willful or negligent act of another person or persons.

Wrongful death can be the result of various negligent acts. Some of the most common causes of wrongful death are the result of unintentional injuries and include motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, workplace accidents, unintentional poisoning, faulty products and drowning. Motor vehicle accidents, including car, truck and motorcycle accidents, result in the highest number of wrongful deaths by unintentional injuries, followed by unintentional poisoning and unintentional falls. If you know someone who has recently been the victim of one of these accidents, turn to a trusted and experienced Dublin Ohio wrongful death lawyer.

The statute of limitations, as well as the individuals entitled to sue and receive compensation for wrongful death varies from state to state. To see if you are eligible to sue and/or receive compensation for the wrongful death of a family member, you should contact a wrongful death attorney right away.

No amount of money can heal the pain of losing someone close to you, nor can money replace a person. The entire concept of someone’s worth seems distasteful, but often money is the only tool the law has for compensating people for the wrongful death of a loved one. Attorney Todd Brenner understands that. He has years of experience representing the families of victims who have been killed through the negligence or recklessness of others and takes pride in bringing his skill and compassion to these difficult cases to maximize the recovery for families. 

How the Ohio Wrongful Death Statute Works

Ohio law specifically authorizes a civil action in any case where a party’s wrongful act, neglect or default caused the death of another. The representative of the deceased is entitled to bring a lawsuit in court for the benefit of the surviving spouse, children, parents, and other next of kin of the deceased. In most cases, it is up to the plaintiff to prove damages, but in wrongful death cases, the law presumes that the surviving spouse, children and parents suffered damages; it is up to the defendant, if they can, to prove these family members didn’t suffer damages.

A wrongful death case can be brought within two years from the date of death. If successful, the personal representative can recover compensation for the family for several types of damages, including funeral and burial expenses, loss of financial support the deceased would have provided, the value of the loss of services the deceased would have provided, such as raising the children or helping out around the house, loss of prospective inheritance and the family members’ mental anguish.
