Wrongful Death claims can result from many types of negligence. Typically, survivors such as a spouse, mother, child, and parent are entitled to recover for damages including loss of services, consortium, care, guidance, advice, counsel, training and loss of income that the deceased would have contributed over their total work life expectancy.

It's always difficult when someone dies, but when the death should never have occurred it's a tragedy. There's no more "an eye for an eye." Closure and justice in the form of money damages is all there is.
It's the worst pain imaginable to lose a loved one: a father, husband, wife, child, when the death occured because of neglect. When the death should have never happened. It's pain inside pain. It's tragedy on top of tragedy. It's an awesome responsibility to represent a wife that has lost a husband, or a husband that has lost a wife, or parents that have lost a child. Dignity, respect, and the honoring of a person and their memory are so important to the family. An experienced Cincinnati wrongful death lawyer should understand all the dynamics and how all the family members have been affected by the loss.
