Wrongful death claims arise when another person’s negligence or wrongful act causes the death of another. Wrongful death lawsuits operate under the theory that someone’s negligent or otherwise wrongful conduct caused another to die, thereby depriving the beneficiaries of that person’s estate to suffer a loss. Under Ohio law, a claim for wrongful death must be brought by the personal representative of the estate of the deceased person, for the benefit of certain beneficiaries of the deceased’s estate.
Ohio law recognizes certain damages that can be recovered by a deceased person’s estate in a wrongful death claim. The collectible damages are the following:
- Loss of companionship
- Mental anguish
- Past medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of support
- Loss of benefits (pension, medical coverage, etc.)
- Loss of care
- General damages
- Punitive or exemplary damages
