Columbus, Ohio, Fatal Truck Accident Lawyers
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.
