Toledo Child Wrongful Death Lawyer

Wrongful death claims are mostly controlled by Ohio Revised Code §§ 2125.01, 2125.02, and 2125.03. Those code sections come from the state’s probate laws. If you have recently lost a child, and want to file a claim against the person, company, or entity whose negligent conduct cause your child’s death, consult a Toledo child wrongful death lawyer.

The law allows the executor or administrator of the deceased child’s estate to bring a claim against the person or entity whose negligent conduct or wrongful act caused the child’s death.

Reasons For Filing a Claim

A case can be brought if the child could have maintained a claim for negligence or wrongful conduct had the death not occurred. That means the executor would need to show that the other party acted in a negligent or wrongful way and that conduct caused the death. Wrongful death cases can be brought for negligent acts such as car accidents and medical malpractice, or criminal acts like murder and manslaughter.
