Wrongful Death

Wrongful Death Lawyer

When the actions of someone else take away the life of a loved one, the injustice of the situation may be overwhelming. The grief of your loss may at first overshadow some of the more concrete consequences of the death. But with time, those consequences become more and more apparent, and families are often left with a wide range of burdens that they did not anticipate.

Funeral costs and large medical expenses can be financially devastating to a family. But the loss of a member of a household frequently adds another burden, in that their income helped support the lives of those who are left behind. More expenses with less income can leave a family in a very tight spot, adding stress and strain to an already difficult situation.

Additional Recoverable Damages may include:

  • Lost wages
  • Loss of support
  • Loss of benefits (i.e. Pension, health coverage, etc.)
  • Loss of care
  • General Damages

If you have lost a loved one due to someone else’s actions, whether in a car accident, physical attack, nursing home abuse or medical procedure, you may be able to hold that person accountable for the consequences of his or her actions. In such a situation, a wrongful death suit in the Dayton or Cincinnati area can seek justice through financial compensation for the deceased’s survivors. While no amount of money can bring your loved one back, a return in your favor can ease some of those additional stresses so that you and your family can focus on healing.
