Serious car accidents can result in the death of drivers or passengers, oftentimes leaving behind surviving families that must learn to live their lives without their loved one.
If your family member has been the victim of a car accident and suffered death as a result, you may file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault driver. These claims include a variety of things such as a claim for your family’s pain and suffering, the loss of the deceased’s economic contribution and other household contributions, as well as loss of companionship.
If your loved one was the victim of a Maumee car accident and you wish to file a wrongful death claim, it must be done within a certain amount of time under Ohio law. Although we know that it is a very difficult time when you lose a loved one, the family should contact a wrongful death lawyer soon after the accident to ensure damages will be paid.
The lawyers at The Charles E. Boyk Law Offices have extensive experience and knowledge of wrongful death claims. It is a practice area that our lawyers are well versed in, and they have helped several other Ohioans receive favorable settlements for the death of their loved ones.
