The loss of a loved one is perhaps the most emotional period of any person's life. Should the loss occur through the fault of another, such as in a traffic accident, Ohio law recognizes a civil recovery method to compensate the family members involved. This includes loss of financial or economic support, loss of services, loss of society and companionship, mental anguish and other emotional distress the loss of a loved one has caused. Many times, the victim's family is unaware of insurance or other coverages that are or were available for the untimely and unfortunate demise of the deceased. Should you find yourself in this position, Helser Law Office can counsel the decedent's representative and pursue claims on behalf of the family.
