Compensation for the Loss of a Loved One

There is no amount of money that will ever replace the life of a loved one. As terrible as it is to learn that a loved one has died, it is even worse when you have to live with the knowledge that his or her death was preventable. You may be feeling a mixture of powerful emotions about this situation, but one thing is certain: you deserve to be compensated for your losses. If the accident was caused by the other person's careless or reckless actions, you have a right to pursue monetary damages. While the money will not undo what has happened, you can at least recover compensation to offset the considerable economic hardship that follows in the wake of a fatal accident.

The Ohio Department of Health lists unintentional injuries as causing 5,030 deaths in a recent year. Motor vehicle collisions were the cause of one out of every five accident related deaths statewide, based on statistics provided by the Ohio Department of Public Safety. This included car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and other traffic crashes statewide. No matter what cause led to the death of your loved one, The Moore Law Firm is prepared to fight for the compensation you deserve.

Ohio's Wrongful Death Statute

Ohio Revised Code Ch. 2125 establishes a cause of action after a death that occurs due to the neglect, wrongful act, or default of another person or party. "Wrongful act" is typically associated with intentional acts of violence, such as assault or murder, while "neglect" refers to legal negligence. Negligence occurs when a person or party breaches their legal duty of care, causing injuries or death to another person. Wrongful death claims in Ohio are essentially the same as traditional personal injury cases, with the only difference being that the plaintiff has died and the claim is being brought on his or her behalf.

Examples of negligent actions that may warrant a wrongful death case include:

  • Driving while under the influence
  • Medical malpractice
  • Manufacturing dangerous or defective products
  • Knowingly having dangerous conditions on a property
