When a person dies in an accident, a child may be left without a parent, a husband or wife may be left without a life partner, and a parent may be left without a loving child. In addition to emotional pain and grief, the family may face severe financial issues caused by the death.
At the Sandel Law Firm in Akron, we are here to help you deal with the legal issues caused by the death. If someone else was responsible for your family member’s death, we can help you recover compensation for your emotional and financial losses. This is known as a wrongful death case.

If you hire me, you owe me no money upfront. I handle all wrongful death claims on a contingency fee basis. This means I will recover my fees from the responsible party’s insurance company if — and only if — I am successful.
When Is A Fatal Accident A Wrongful Death Case?
A wrongful death is, by definition, the taking of another person’s life by careless or reckless actions, whether those actions are intentional or unintentional. In the event of a wrongful death, the decedent’s heirs, dependents and other beneficiaries may file against those responsible. While no amount of financial compensation can fill the absence of a loved one, the security of one’s financial future and the satisfaction of justice served can offer some comfort in a painful time.
In Ohio, you have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit if your family member’s death was caused by someone else’s misconduct or negligence. While nothing can undo the wrong that was done to your family, the legal process help you receive the closure and compensation that you and your family deserve.
