Compensation for Ohio Families
The loss of a loved one in a fatal car accident brings not only extreme emotional grief, but often significant financial hardship as well. Under Ohio law, surviving family members have the right to pursue compensation for economic and noneconomic damages in a wrongful death suit, including:
- Medical bills
- Loss of support
- Loss of prospective inheritance
- Funeral expenses
- Final medical bills
- Conscious pain and suffering of the deceased
Insurance companies are aggressive in defending against wrongful death lawsuits and will likely try to limit or deny the compensation your family needs. Our Cleveland car accident attorneys have extensive experience handling fatal car accident lawsuits and never back down from a fight.
We understand that legal action may not be foremost on your mind during this difficult time. When you are ready to explore your legal options, we will be here for you.
