In recognition of the emotional and economic damages suffered by the survivors of a person who is killed by another’s carelessness, both Ohio and Michigan provide for wrongful death actions. These actions may be filed on behalf of the victim’s estate, with proceeds going to the surviving spouse, children, parents and next of kin (also known as “heirs).
This compensation is aimed at providing relief for both the economic and non-economic losses that a family suffers in the aftermath of a loved one’s wrongful death.
The skilled and experienced Toledo wrongful death lawyers of Gallon, Takacs, Boissoneault & Schaffer have recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements on behalf of the families of wrongful death victims. We know that these claims can arise in a wide variety of situations, including:
A wrongful death case must be filed in Ohio within two years of the loved one’s death, while the time limit in Michigan is three years. While nothing will truly compensate for your loss, our Ohio and Michigan wrongful death lawyers can make sure your legal rights are protected and secure funds to help you move ahead with your life.
For more than 60 years, the Toledo personal injury lawyers of Gallon, Takacs, Boissoneault & Schaffer have represented the families of wrongful death victims throughout Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan, including Toledo, Findlay, Lima, Sandusky, Oregon, Defiance and Fremont, Ohio as well as Monroe and Ann Arbor, Michigan and surrounding communities.
