When you lose a loved one as a result of a workplace accident, the emotional toll can be devastating.

What to Expect in Ohio Wrongful Death Litigation
Under Ohio law, the decedent’s personal representative (the person appointed to administer his or her estate through the probate process) is responsible for bringing wrongful death claims on the family’s behalf. This may include the spouse, children, mother, father, and/or other next of kin. Depending on the nature of the accident and the specific family member (or members) on whose behalf the claim is being brought, the available types of damages our Steubenville injury attorney may be able to help you recover include:
- Medical bills
- Funeral and burial expenses
