What Is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death is when a person dies in an incident caused by the negligence or recklessness of another. A person might be responsible for a person’s death, even if a criminal proceeding finds them not guilty.

Wrongful deaths often arise out of car accidents, medical malpractice, or workplace accidents.

In most cases, the person who files a wrongful death lawsuit is the executor of the deceased’s estate. However, a family member may also file a wrongful death case.

Those who commonly take legal action in wrongful death cases include, but are not limited to:

  • Family members who suffered damages due to the deceased person’s death
  • Adopted or blood-related immediate family members
  • The parents of a child who is killed before birth
  • Domestic or life partners, including a spouse
  • Children of a deceased parent

Survival Actions in Ohio

Like wrongful death, survival actions are legal actions that allow family members of the deceased to seek compensation. According to Ohio law, survival actions relate to the suffering and costs associated with the deceased. In contrast, wrongful death losses are related to surviving family members. Therefore, the funds sought through survival actions cover the victim’s medical bills before death. Wrongful death compensation, on the other hand, might compensate surviving family members for other costs, like funeral expenses.
