Wrongful Death

There is no loss greater than that of a loved one.

And, there is no work more important to us here at The Henry Law Firm than a family putting their faith in our services to pursue the interests of a person taken too soon. In these cases, we remind ourselves every day to be the legal professionals that we would want our families to hire. When someone is killed by negligence, the family will have many questions, concerns, and uncertainties ahead.

What happened? How did it happen? Why did it happen? Who is responsible? Finding answers to these questions can be difficult because the investigation parties aren’t working on your behalf. Here at The Henry Law Firm, we work for you — going above and beyond to determine who is responsible and how your family can receive fair compensation for wrongful death.

You Are Our Agenda

Our compassionate team of legal professionals works empathetically and diligently on your case. We house years of wrongful death experience paired with a modern approach to communication so that our clients feel comfortable and heard. 

Other agencies have their own agendas. While they may want to help, they don’t answer to you. OSHA works to determine whether or not a company or business violated any regulations or guidelines. Law enforcement investigates criminal circumstances. The Henry Law Firm pursues your family’s interest under the law. We exhaust every resource and work tirelessly through passionate and skilled investigation techniques to uncover answers and obtain compensation for negligence.

Understanding Wrongful Death

If a negligent individual or a careless company has taken a family member away from you — your family may be entitled to compensation for the loss of income, the loss of society and companionship, and the loss of services to the family. Whenever the facts show a wrongdoer consciously disregarded community safety, we pursue punitive damages designed to punish the wrongdoer and make the community a safer place.

Wrongful death cases pose their own unique challenges based on the laws that apply and the difficulty in gathering information. We have successfully represented the families of those wrongfully killed by negligence, recklessness, and intentional acts. Our practice revolves around understanding what happened, investigating thoroughly, and then aggressively prosecuting an action on behalf of your family.

What May Cause a Wrongful Death?

Unfortunately, any number of situations can result in wrongful death. No two cases are the same, which is why we take a personalized approach to every client to ensure that no stone gets left unturned. Our legal professionals are highly skilled in investigating and putting together successful cases for your family to determine who’s at fault and fair compensation for your loss. There’s no price on a loved one, but we work to ensure that you’re taken care of.

Wrongful death cases may arise from:

  • Car crashes 
  • Motorcycle crashes 
  • Truck crashes 
  • Bicycle crashes 
  • Construction accidents 
  • Work-related injuries 
  • Product defects 
  • Medical malpractice 
  • Defective medical devices or drugs 
  • Illegal sale of alcohol 
  • And more

Facing a lost loved one due to someone else’s negligence is devastating, but we can help. While police, OSHA, and insurance companies treat human losses as numbers or statistics — we don’t. We’ll work on your behalf and advocate for your family during these difficult times through proven success and genuine compassion.

We’ll Help You Get the Compensation You Deserve

The legal professionals at the Henry Law Firm are here to help you and your family. We have extensive knowledge of the law and longstanding history of success gaining compensation for our clients. Wrongful death claims go to court through a personal representative, typically a close family member such as a spouse, parent, or child. The personal representative files in their own name, and if successful, the settlement is split between beneficiaries of the deceased.

In Ohio, plaintiffs can seek recovery for both pecuniary loss and punitive damages. This may include:

  • Loss of future earnings or income
  • Lost pensions 
  • Retirement 
  • Childcare services 
  • Emotional pain and suffering 
  • Loss of companionship 
  • And more
