An Ohio firm dedicated to fighting for justice

A wrongful death action may result from any number of scenarios:

In legal terms, a wrongful death is death that is caused by the wrongful act or negligence of another, which serves as the basis for a civil action for damages on behalf of the decedent's heirs.

In most cases, the victims' families bring wrongful death suits against the defendants to seek compensation for pain and suffering, funeral expenses, and lost wages – past and future – among other damages.

Conditions for filing a wrongful death claim

The death must have been caused, in whole or in part, by the defendant's conduct, even though there was no direct intention to kill the victim. The defendant must have been deemed negligent or strictly liable for the victim's death.
