Ohio Wrongful Death Laws

The definition of a wrongful death in Ohio is defined as a death which is caused by neglect, wrongful act, or default of another party. You may file a wrongful death claim if one of these actions would have entitled your loved one to personal injury damages if the death had not occurred.

Family members entitled to damages include the surviving spouse, any surviving children, and the surviving parents. Siblings and grandparents can only obtain compensation if they can demonstrate in court that they have suffered a compensable loss. The “personal representative” of your loved one’s estate must bring the claim to court.

Damages available in an Ohio wrongful death claim include:

  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Medical expenses incurred before the death
  • Loss of support
  • Loss of services
  • Loss of care and companionship
  • Loss of the prospective inheritance
  • Pain and suffering

Ohio Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations

The statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim in Ohio is two years from the date your loved one passed away or the date it was discovered that the death was wrongful.
