Wrongful Death from Car Accident
Attorneys for Car Accident Wrongful Death Claims in Ohio
Ohio's wrongful death statute was designed to be a mechanism to provide compensation for the close relatives of a person who was killed through the fault of another. Ohio Revised Code section 2125.02 presumes that a wrongfully deceased party's children, surviving spouse, and parents have all suffered damages caused by the wrongful death.
Unfortunately, a frequent source of wrongful death claims in Ohio are fatal car accidents. In these types of cases, if the at-fault driver was insured, there still might be multiple insurance companies which could be held liable to provide compensation for the family members who survived the wrongful death.
