Wrongful Death

Toledo, Ohio Wrongful Death Lawsuits

When someone dies because of the negligent property owner’s or reckless driver’s actions, insurance companies only add insult to injury when they try to minimize the value of that person’s life.

We value our clients too much to let that happen without a fight.

Unlike some states, Ohio does not place a monetary cap on damages that can be awarded in a wrongful death claim. For lawyers who will aggressively seek to obtain FULL compensation — contact the law offices of Lafferty, Gallagher & Scott, LLC today.

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:
  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Loss of income, support and care
  • Loss of society and companionship
  • Lost pension and retirement benefits
  • Loss of prospective inheritance
  • Mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering

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.
