Ohio Wrongful Death Attorney
Protecting the rights of survivors: your Ohio Wrongful Death Attorney at Chester Law Group Co., LPA
What is "wrongful death"?
People are not immortal. When we are children we learn that death is a fact of life: we all go sometime. The most fortunate live a long life and pass away comfortably surrounded by family, but often lives are taken seemingly before their time, from disease, fatal accidents, or violence. In most cases, however tragic, a death is simply a loss to be grieved, a life to be remembered.
But what if your parent, spouse, or child was killed as a result of the recklessness, negligence, or intentional harm of another person, an institution, or a business?
This is what we call wrongful death. All loss of life feels wrong, of course, but there are two clear conditions for wrongful death:
- That the victim died as a result of the action-or inaction-of someone else. In other words, that someone is at fault.
- That the victim would not have died if this action-or inaction-had not taken place.
When a death is caused by recklessness, negligence, or intentional harm, the surviving family has a legal right to compensation for their loss.

Our lawyers protect the rights of surviving families of victims of wrongful death throughout the state of Ohio.
Whether your spouse was an innocent bystander shot and killed by police during a drug arrest in Cleveland or your child died after your car was hit by a speeding coal truck in Belmont County, you are a surviving victim of a wrongful death, and you have a right to compensation.
If you are grieving for a lost loved one, a lawsuit may be the last thing on your mind. Your life has been turned upside down and you don't want to relive the incident again. But consider your future and the welfare of your family.
The death of a spouse who is the main earner-or of a wage-earning adult child-can impose a serious financial burden on the surviving family. If your loved-one died suddenly and unexpectedly, it is likely that plans have not been made to cover funeral costs or to settle outstanding debts.
Claiming life insurance benefits can also be a struggle, and those benefits may not cover the lost income, bills, and medical expenses that result from the death of a family member.
At Chester Law Group Co., LPA, our experienced wrongful death lawyers will aggressively seek the help you need and the compensation you deserve to get you and your family through this difficult time.
