Guidance For West Chester Families Who Lost A Loved One Too Soon

Nothing feels as terrible as losing someone you love too soon. If another person or party’s negligence contributed to your loved one’s death, you may have a way to hold this party accountable for their actions. Through a wrongful death lawsuit, you can find some justice through the court system as well as recover compensation for your damages.

When you need a team of experienced, strong, yet compassionate wrongful death attorneys, you will find one at Rittgers Rittgers & Nakajima. With more than 200 combined years of experience, we serve the people of West Chester, Butler County and the surrounding communities when they lose someone to a senseless accident. With six office locations throughout Ohio, including West Chester Township, we are more than capable of assisting you, no matter where you or your loved one lived.

What Damages Can You Recover?

Nothing can bring back the person you love. However, damages are a way of holding the perpetrator accountable for what they did. Some of the most common damages in wrongful death lawsuits include:

  • Medical bills
  • Funeral expenses
  • Burial expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future income

Wrongful death cases are incredibly complex. Handling it on your own, especially while also coping with grief, is more than anyone should have to endure. Allow our reliable team of personal injury lawyers and wrongful death lawyers to navigate the law on your behalf. We comb through every detail during our investigation to ensure we have a strong case and can take on the other party’s insurance company.

Get Help Before The Deadline Passes

Ohio has a two-year statute of limitations for wrongful death claims. This means that if you do not file your lawsuit within two years of the date of your loved one’s death, you forfeit your right to recover compensation for your damages. If you live in Ohio but your loved one died in Kentucky or vice versa, we may still be able to help you.
