Q:

Who Can File A Wrongful Death Claim?

A:

Wrongful death claims are intended to compensate the individuals most impacted by a loved one's death. When you file a wrongful death claim in Ohio, you act as a "personal representative" of the deceased's estate. In most cases, this is a next-of-kin family member who is financially harmed by the death, including a spouse, children or parents. More distant relatives such as grandparents or cousins may be able to file a claim if they are able to prove tangible harm, but it is not as likely.

Q:

What Can You Collect In Damages?

A:

You may be able to collect compensation for a range of losses, including:

  • Income
  • Medical bills
  • Funeral expenses
  • Companionship
  • Inheritance
  • Mental anguish
