Who is Eligible to File a Wrongful Death Claim in Ohio?

Some states permit particular family members to file a wrongful death lawsuit, but in Ohio, the personal representative of the deceased’s estate must be the party who files the claim.

A damages award can include compensation for some of the following types of losses:

How Long Do I Have to File a Wrongful Death Claim in Ohio?

Wrongful death lawsuits in Dublin, Ohio, have a two-year statute of limitations. This clock is the same — two years — as the clock for a personal injury lawsuit, but it is essential to be clear that it will start to tick at a different time.

Whereas a personal injury lawsuit clock begins ticking on the date of the accident, a wrongful death clock starts ticking on the date of the deceased’s death. From the date of the death, a wrongful death case must be filed within two years.

The sooner you can speak with our skilled wrongful death attorneys in Dublin, the quicker we can begin preserving critical evidence to help support your claim. Contact us today to get started.

What is a Wrongful Death Claim in Dublin, Ohio?

Under Ohio law, a wrongful death is defined as a death resulting from the “wrongful act, neglect, or default” of another party that would have allowed the deceased person to file a personal injury lawsuit if they had survived.

To be clear, wrongful death cases are closely related to personal injury lawsuits in that both types of cases allow a plaintiff to seek compensation from a defendant who caused a severe injury. Yet in a wrongful death case, the injured person is no longer alive to file a claim themselves. Instead, Ohio law allows another party to stand in the deceased’s shoes to file a lawsuit against the person or entity responsible for the deceased’s fatal injuries.

Common ways individuals lose their lives to negligence, thereby making their families eligible for compensation, may include, but are not limited to:
