Frequently Asked Questions

WHO HAS THE RIGHT TO FILE A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM AFTER THE LOSS OF A LOVED ONE IN INDEPENDENCE, OHIO?

If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of another party, you may have the right to file a wrongful death claim. There are, however, several criteria that may come into play.

  1. Did someone else’s negligence cause your loved one’s death? If your loved one could have filed a personal injury claim if he had lived, you likely have the right to file a wrongful death claim for the loss of your loved one.
  2. What is your relationship to the deceased? Generally, the closest family members to the deceased have the first right to file a wrongful death claim. For example, the deceased’s spouse will usually have the first right to file a claim. If the deceased does not have a spouse, the deceased’s children may have the right to file a claim; and if the deceased has neither spouse nor children, their parents may have the right to file a claim.

In some cases in which the deceased does not have close family, the deceased’s estate may have the right to file a claim.

CAN I FILE A WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIM EVEN IF MY LOVED ONE DID NOT DIE IMMEDIATELY?

If your loved one died as a result of their injuries, you may have the right to file a wrongful death claim, even if your loved one did not die immediately.

CAN MY FAMILY FILE MORE THAN ONE CLAIM FOR THE LOSS OF A LOVED ONE?

Your family can file only a single claim for the loss of a loved one. If more than one party has the right to file a claim, you will need to decide as a family how you want to handle the claim, including who will receive that compensation.
