Ohio Wrongful Death Attorneys

Whenever a death occurs, loved ones are bound to feel sadness, grief, and remorse. When a death is wrongful, however, people often experience additional emotions such as anger and confusion. A death is wrongful when another’s conduct results in the death of a victim. Often, the victim leaves behind surviving family members and dependents who will undoubtedly suffer because of the victim’s death.

Close family members who suffer a tragic loss should discuss their legal options with an Ohio wrongful death law firm. Karp Steiger handles wrongful death claims with the compassion our clients deserve.

How Wrongful Death Claims Work in Ohio

If a death is wrongful, the survivors of the victim may be entitled to compensation, subject to certain statutory restraints such as the applicable statute of limitations and damage caps. In Ohio, potential compensation includes future lost wages, costs of past medical bills, funeral bills, and the victim’s life or services. It is important to speak with an experienced wrongful death attorney to fully understand the impact and ramifications of pursuing such a claim.

Sometimes, the responsible party will face criminal penalties for their conduct. This case is not enough for families to achieve full justice for their loss. Never hesitate to learn whether you qualify to file a civil claim against the liable party.
