Columbus Wrongful Death Lawyer
After an accident caused by someone’s negligent or reckless conduct takes the life of one of your loved ones, you may feel hurt, confused, and unsure of what to do next. In order to seek justice for the death of a loved one, the surviving family members are entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In Ohio, the process for filing these types of claims can be quite complex. For this reason, surviving family members often benefit from seeking the assistance of a Columbus wrongful death lawyer at the Eshelman Legal Group.
Types of Wrongful Death Benefits
Survivors of the deceased victim are eligible to receive compensation for the following types of losses:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Medical bills
- Any pain and suffering the victim endured
- Loss of companionship
- Pension, retirement funds, and medical coverage that family members would have received if the victim had lived
The types of benefits family members receive will usually depend on the nature of the accident or injury that caused the victim’s death. For example, in drunk driving cases, the court may determine that punitive damages should be awarded to the victim’s family members in order to punish the negligent party for their actions.
