Although right now is a terribly difficult time, it is important to talk to a lawyer about your loved one's death and to file a claim as soon as possible. Insurance companies work quickly to minimize or deny liability and the sooner an attorney can start gathering evidence, interviewing potential witnesses, and putting together a case for trial, the better your chances for success.
If negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct was responsible for the death of your loved one, the words "accidental fatality" are meaningless. What's wrong is wrong.
When someone dies because of the negligent act of another, a property owner's or reckless driver's actions, insurance companies only add insult to injury when they try to minimize the value of that person's life.
We value our clients too much to let that happen without a fight. Unlike some states, Ohio does not place a monetary cap on damages that can be awarded in a wrongful death claim. We will aggressively seek to obtain maximum compensation or your claim. We understand that there is no such thing as a fair result for people who have lost loved ones as the result of the actions of someone else.
As an attorney my job is to achieve the best result I possibly can in each case. To do that, I build a strong position to negotiate fair settlements by preparing from the outset to go to trial if insurance companies refuse to be fair.
In Ohio, wrongful death actions are brought on behalf of the deceased person by a representative of their estate. Eligible beneficiaries — spouses, children, or parents in most cases — may recover compensation for some or all of the following damages:
A jury verdict of guilty or an unlawful criminal sentence can be corrected through an appeal. A federal criminal case is not necessarily over when the defendant is convicted and sentenced; in circumstances where the trial Court made an error of law or imposed an unreasonable sentence, the case can be heard by the Court of Appeals. When a conviction or sentence is not based on adequate evidence or involves a misapplication of the law, the Court of Appeals has the authority to overturn the conviction, reduce the sentence, or send the case back to the trial court for reconsideration of the issues. Raising an appeal is an intricate process in which the assistance of an experienced attorney is crucial.
