​​​Wrongful Death Law in Ohio

​According to Chapter 2125 of the Ohio Revised Code, the surviving family members have the right to pursue a legal action against the party responsible for the wrongful death of the decedent. State laws about wrongful death were non-existent in the past; however, it has changed over the years to give the decedent’s beneficiaries and/or dependents the right to seek monetary compensation that they need and deserve.


When to Pursue a Wrongful Death Claim
If you believe that the death of your loved one is a result of gross negligence, recklessness, abuse or malpractice of another individual, you have the right to file for a wrongful death lawsuit. Death may occur under various circumstances such as:
    Product Liability
    Hazardous Products
    Defective and/or Dangerous Drugs
    Defective and/or Dangerous Medical Devices
    Motor Vehicle Accidents
    Medical Malpractice
    Nursing Home Abuse
    Workplace Accident
    General Negligence and Malpractice

The success of a wrongful death case depends on a number of factors which includes the following:
    The defendant caused, wholly or partly, the death of the victim;
    The death of the victim is due to the defendant’s negligence, recklessness, abuse and/or malpractice;
    The decedent has beneficiaries or dependents including a spouse, children, parents, siblings and other surviving family members;
    The death of the victim caused monetary damages.
