When Another Person's Negligence Results In The Death Of A Loved One

There may be nothing more devastating than the unexpected loss of a loved one — except when your loved one's death happened in an accident that occurred because of another person's negligence. It is important that you seek the advice of a Westerville lawyer who can help you through this difficult time and work to ensure that your interests are protected.

At Heit Law, LLC, I represent families throughout the Columbus area and all of Ohio who are suffering the tragic loss of a loved one. I know that no amount of money will ever make up for your loved one's death, but monetary compensation is the only form of justice provided to the survivors. I work hard to secure maximum compensation on your behalf.

Seeking Compensation For All Your Losses After The Death Of A Loved One

According to Ohio law, surviving family members are entitled to seek certain damages in wrongful death cases. I will work closely with you to understand how your loved one's passing has impacted your family as well as the material losses you have suffered so I can present the most compelling possible argument in support of your family's claim for compensation.

Depending on the specific circumstances surrounding your case, I may be able to seek damages for some or all of the following:

  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Loss of income and future retirement benefits
  • Loss of love and companionship
  • Loss of household services provided by your loved one
  • Loss of inheritance
  • Mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering of your loved one prior to death
  • Punitive damages against the negligent party
