Determined Ohio Attorney Handles Wrongful Death Cases
Established law firm represents families in the Shaker Heights area who’ve lost a loved one
The unexpected loss of a family member is even more tragic when their death is caused by someone else’s reckless or deliberately malicious behavior. At Apelt Law Firm, LLC, I work to help survivors in Ohio cope with their new circumstances. In settlement negotiations and at trial, I advocate for my clients to receive compensation that allows them to settle their loved one's affairs and find a measure of justice for their wrongful death.
Respected Ohio lawyer pursues justice for victims of negligence or violence
A representative of a deceased person's estate may have a valid basis for a wrongful death lawsuit if the death was a direct result of another person's or organization's negligent or intentional actions. My law firm may represent you and your family if you lost a loved one due to any of the following causes:
- Auto accident
- Truck accident
- Slip and fall
- Traumatic brain injury
- Motorcycle accident
- Defective product
- Lack of proper security
- Medical malpractice
- Birth injury
- Nursing home abuse and neglect
- Aviation accident
My thorough understanding of Ohio wrongful death laws enables me to skillfully handle all legal aspects of your case and to seek the remedy you deserve. Those laws set a time limit to pursue a wrongful death claim, so it is essential you seek the legal help you need as early as possible.
Caring counselor seeks compensation for grieving families
I understand the profound impacts of the loss of a loved one, which is why I devote substantial resources to every wrongful death case I take. The damages awarded in a wrongful death lawsuit depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of the accident and the individual's suffering prior to passing. I will strive to help clients receive compensation for:
- Medical costs
- Funeral expenses
- Mental anguish
- Loss of future earnings
- Loss of love, affection and companionship
- Loss of protection and guidance
- Benefits lost due to the victim’s death, including medical insurance
I employ private investigators and work with expert witnesses to ensure that your case is as strong as possible. I may also collect and preserve evidence from the accident scene and obtain testimony from people with first-person knowledge of your loved one's passing. I will explore all options before focusing in on a tailored legal strategy to help you receive the maximum compensation possible.
