What is wrongful Death?
A wrongful death lawsuit claims that the victim died as a result of negligence or carelessness on the part of the person or entity being sued, and that the victim’s survivors are entitled to monetary damages as a result of the improper conduct.
Who can sue for Wrongful Death?
In Ohio, wrongful death claims must be brought on behalf of the surviving family members by the executor of the will or another representative appointed by the court. State laws can sometimes be confusing; therefore, you should consult an experienced wrongful death attorney to ensure that your claims are filed correctly and on time.
How soon must a wrongful death claim be filed before we lose the right to do so?
Every state has certain time limits called “statutes of limitations,” which restrict the length of time you have to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If you miss the deadline for filing your case, your claim may be dismissed by the court. This is why it is so important to speak with an attorney.
What damages can I recover as a result of a wrongful death?
When a person is killed as a result of the negligent, reckless or unlawful actions of another person or entity, the victim’s surviving relatives can file a wrongful death civil lawsuit seeking financial damages from the responsible party. Wrongful death damages may seek to compensate the family for medical bills, burial expenses, lost wages, loss of companionship, and loss of inheritance.
What is the difference between criminal and civil cases related to the death of an individual?
In instances of death, a case can be heard in a criminal court or a civil court and, in some instances, both. For example, if the negligence of a driver results in the death of another, the state can bring criminal charges (homicide) against the driver. But the affected loved ones of the victim can also sue the driver in civil court (for wrongful death) for compensation related to emotional and economic losses.
