What is the central factor in a wrongful death case?

The term “wrongful death” in a legal sense refers to the loss of a loved one – a parent, spouse or child – that is linked with third-party culpability.

That means this: The careless act or omission of another person or multiple parties was a direct catalyst promoting loss of life.

That is truly tragic, of course. Absent negligence, individuals would not be grieving the death of a family member.

How does the law address a wrongful death incident?

First of all, it is duly recognized that no legal remedy can compensate for the wrongful death of a loved one in Ohio or elsewhere. Surviving family members must grieve and process the enormity of their loss.

The law recognizes, though, that a lawsuit enabling a maximum recovery can go far toward helping a family in many ways following a wrongful death.

Benefits that can be pursued via a wrongful death claim

It prominently bears noting that many families feel a sense of material empowerment by taking a proactive legal stance following a loved one’s death. A wrongful death claim can promote accountability and deter similar negligence in the future.

Moreover, it can secure compensation badly needed by a family. Awarded damages can be applied to medical expenses, funeral costs, lost wages and future financial needs. A remedy can additionally address noneconomic damages such as emotional distress and loss of companionship.

A proven and compassionate legal team can provide further information and diligent representation in a wrongful death matter.
