A Law Firm Focused on Wrongful Deaths
We help families of wrongful death victims
The sudden or unexpected death of a family member, whether it’s the death of a husband, the death of a wife, the death of a child, the death of a mother or the death of a father, is an overwhelming experience.
When your family member’s death is a result of the carelessness or negligence of another individual, a business or an organization, it can be devastating and bewildering.
No matter what the circumstances, a loved one’s death leads to strong emotions of loss and sadness. These internal feelings are a natural part of the grieving process. A wrongful death of a loved one may also create feelings of shock, disbelief, anger and extreme anxiety about a family’s future.
If you are visiting this website due to the death of a family member, please accept our sincere condolences. Over the last 40 years of helping clients in wrongful death cases throughout Ohio, we have seen how wrongful deaths impact families. It’s the reason we work aggressively for families that have been victimized by wrongful death and deliver the results they need to be prepared for their futures, find a degree of closure and move-on with their lives.
No amount of money can ever make up for the loss of a loved one. However, it’s important that a family prepare for how a wrongful death changed their lives and their futures. There will be emotional changes and financial uncertainties. Ohio wrongful death laws recognize these facts and allow families to take action in order to recover monetary compensation for a wrongful death.
Filing and pursuing wrongful death cases can be extremely complicated and cumbersome. These types of cases require a thorough understanding of many types of Ohio laws as well as the skills and resources to accurately determine and support a fair and adequate value for a wrongful death claim.
At Slater & Zurz LLP, we have been helping families throughout Ohio obtain successful wrongful death settlements and verdicts for over 40 years.
