We value our clients too much to let that happen without a fight. At Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC, we understand that there is no such thing as a fair result for people who have lost loved ones as the result of another’s actions. That said, it is still our job as attorneys to achieve the best result we possibly can in each case. To do that, we put ourselves in a strong position to negotiate fair settlements by preparing from the outset to go to trial if insurance companies refuse to be fair.
In Ohio, wrongful death actions are brought on behalf of the deceased person by a representative of their estate. Eligible beneficiaries — spouses, children, or parents in most cases — may recover compensation for some or all of the following damages:
Although right now is a terribly difficult time, it is important to talk to a lawyer about your loved one’s death and to file a claim as soon as possible. Insurance companies work quickly to minimize or deny liability and the sooner our attorneys can start gathering evidence, interviewing potential witnesses, and putting together a case for trial, the better our chances for success.
If negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct was responsible for the death of your loved one, the words “accidental fatality” are meaningless. What’s wrong is wrong. Call our Toledo, Ohio law office or contact us online for a free consultation. Our lawyers handle wrongful death claims on a contingent fee basis, which means you and your family will not pay attorney fees unless we obtain a verdict or settlement in your case.
