Compensation For A Lost Loved One
When you lose someone you love, you have more than just your grief in front of you. Bills will begin to stack up. A wrongful death lawsuit can help you manage the financial difficulties ahead by pursuing such damages as:
- Lost wages: Your loved one contributed to your bills and secured payments for your home. They would have continued to provide for a long time.
- Medical bills: A hospital will bill you for even unsuccessful treatment.
- Emotional pain: There is no way to place a price tag on loss; however, compensation can help alleviate some of the pressure you’re under.
- Loss of consortium: Losing a partner is a special kind of pain. They helped you not just financially but physically, emotionally and logistically. That loss is difficult to replace.
The damages for a wrongful death lawsuit can be great, and you deserve every cent you can secure. Our attorneys can help you with that.
Filing A Wrongful Death Suit
Ohio law offers a complication in wrongful death lawsuits in that the only individual with standing is the “personal representative of the estate.” The court designates this person if the will does not do this. The personal representative’s duty is solely to the estate, but, in most cases, they can and will pursue a wrongful death claim when it’s appropriate.
