Fatal Car Accidents in Ohio
In Ohio, accidents that result in injuries occur much too often. A collision-related injury occurs in Stark County alone about once every 180 minutes. The majority of accident victims are men, and 30% of accidents include a drunk driver. Nearly 60% of fatal collisions in Ohio occur on urban roadways, compared to 38% on rural ones. More than half take place during the day during the summer. In other words, even when the weather is clear and the roads are dry, accidents may and do still happen.
The loss of a loved one may be a traumatic experience for anybody, but it can be particularly upsetting when that person passes away due to the carelessness of another individual. In circumstances like these, members of the family may have a valid claim for damages and the ability to hold the person at fault responsible for the conduct they took.
Members of the bereaved family may be eligible to file a claim for damages, including compensation for funeral expenses, emotional anguish, loss of companionship, and loss of income, among other possible losses. However, there is a predetermined set of criteria that must be met before a wrongful death case may be filed, as well as a list of entities that are eligible to do so.
