Wrongful Death in Ohio
The loss of a parent, spouse, or child is one of the most traumatic events that you may experience in your lifetime, particularly when the loss was sudden and could have been prevented. The death of a loved one leaves an empty place in your life that you may never be able to fill.
In addition to the pain and grief of your loss, you also may be experiencing the stress of settling your family member’s financial and legal affairs, and trying to plan for your family’s future without your lost loved one. Your family member may have been a significant — or sole — contributor to your family’s income, which can leave you feeling an overwhelming amount of stress.
During this tragic and uncertain time in your life, the Ohio wrongful death lawyers at Kisling, Nestico & Redick are here to help. When the loss of your family member was the result of an accident, you may have options to pursue a wrongful death claim.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to receive compensation for:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of your family member’s financial support
- Loss of your family member’s services
- Loss of your family member’s companionship or society
- Loss of a prospective inheritance you might have received from your family member
- Mental anguish
Monetary compensation won’t restore your loved one to your life, but it can help to protect your family’s future in the aftermath of your loss. At Kisling, Nestico & Redick, our Ohio personal injury lawyers understand the toll that the loss of a family member can take. Let us shoulder the burden of legal details so that you can focus on healing from your loss.

Important Information About Ohio Wrongful Death Cases
When you’re considering a wrongful death claim, you likely have many questions about the legal process, the types of compensation available, and what to expect as your claim moves forward. We offer information about some general topics related to Ohio wrongful death cases; however, it’s important to understand that no two cases are alike, and the outcome of your case will be based on a variety of factors.
Ohio Wrongful Death & Survival Actions — There are two ways that you might be able to recover compensation after losing a loved one to an accident. Our attorneys can explain how wrongful death and survival actions work, who can file a case, and your options for pursuing compensation through each.
Damages in Wrongful Death Cases — You may be able to recover compensation for several different types of damages in a wrongful death or survival action. Our attorneys can explain what types of compensation might be available to you based on the specific circumstances of your case.
Wrongful Death & Car Accidents — You may have a wrongful death claim if you lost a family member to a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence. Our attorneys can explain your options and help you pursue your claim.
Wrongful Death & Truck Accidents — Cases involving fatal truck accidents can be complex because of the state and federal laws that apply to the operation of commercial trucks. Our attorneys have significant experience handling fatal truck accident cases, and can guide you through the legal process of a wrongful death claim arising from a collision involving a truck.
Wrongful Death & Medical Malpractice — We trust doctors and other health providers to make us well when we’re sick. When a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other health provider is negligent and causes a death, that can feel like a betrayal. If you have lost a family member to medical malpractice, our attorneys can explain your legal options and fight to hold the health provider accountable.
Wrongful Death & Product Liability — When a product was designed, manufactured, or marketed in a way that resulted in the death of your loved one, you may have a wrongful death claim against the manufacturer, designer, or retailer. Our attorneys can explain your legal options and help you pursue a product liability case.
Wrongful Death & Slip and Fall — Property owners have a duty to keep their premises reasonably safe for others. When an owner fails to maintain his or her premises and some hazard or defect causes a fatal accident, the owner may be liable for wrongful death damages. Let our attorneys listen to your story and discuss your options for a wrongful death claim.
