Strong Advocacy And Compassionate Counsel For Families In Need

The unexpected death of a loved one in a truck accident can bring grief, emotional distress and financial hardship. Though it can be difficult to think about legal matters during this trying time in your life, you should take time to discuss your situation with a lawyer.

The family members and heirs of the deceased’s estate may be entitled to compensation and it is important to begin the legal process in a timely manner. Though the spouse, children, parents, and “other next of kin” can claim such compensation, under Ohio law a wrongful death lawsuit must be initiated for the entire family by the personal representative (executor or administrator) of the estate.

Seeking Full Compensation For Families Of Fatal Truck Accident Victims

Clark, Perdue & List Co, LPA, is a law firm that has been providing results-oriented representation on behalf of families for more than 36 years. We understand the many investigative, financial and legal aspects of these cases and how to obtain results in the face of trucking company tactics designed to minimize its financial obligation. Our attorneys will work diligently to build a strong and successful case for you and your family.

When you choose our law firm to handle your case, we will act quickly to investigate the accident, document the liability of the trucking company, truck driver and other parties, and seek the best possible settlement or jury award for you. In Ohio, compensation in a wrongful death case can include:

  • Medical costs prior to death
  • Mental anguish
  • Lost financial support the deceased would have provided the family had he or she lived
  • Loss of companionship, care, advice, guidance and counsel
  • Funeral expenses

Working with a team of experts that could include one or more accident investigators and an economist, we will calculate the full value of your monetary and non-monetary losses and seek full compensation for you.
