Wrongful Death Lawyers In Columbus Representing Injured People For More Than 45 Years

When our wrongful death lawyers represent the estate of a wrongful death victim, they talk with family members to fully understand and relate to their loss.

  • We will investigate the wrongful death to determine the cause and what entity should be held liable for financial hardships the family is enduring and will continue to endure due to their loss.
  • Our lawyers will guide the survivors through the probate court process.
  • We will work with family members to establish the nature and the monetary value of their losses — from dealing with the income loss of a primary breadwinner to dealing with the loss of emotional support and companionship.
  • Our lawyers and staff will take a personal interest in the family, helping them through their grief.
  • Our law firm will devote the resources necessary — time, money and a trial, if necessary — to obtain justice and fair compensation.

Wrongful death can result from many different kinds of negligence. This can include medical malpractice, a fatal truck accident, a fatal car wreck, nursing home neglect, a construction accident, traumatic brain injury, or any other accident or injury. We have been successful in these types of cases for more than 45 years.

While nothing we do can bring back your loved one, we will seek the compensation to which you are entitled for your mental anguish, grief, loss of support, loss of companionship and guidance, and economic losses.
